Mighty in Character was launched on April 14, 2014 at the Mt. Waddy Primary School. This Foundation was built to help students who attend Mt. Waddy. The Foundation will help the school with financial needs. The day Mighty in Character was launched we were treated with cake and ice-cream. We enjoyed ourselves. They took pictures of us, and we saw ourselves in the newspaper. MIC means a lot to me. It helps to motivate us to build moral values and to develop trust in God.

The Melbourne and Michael Folkes Foundation means to me that I will be obedient, honest, truthful and help us to achieve our goals. MIC will help me to achieve my goals in class and to follow their steps to be obedient, truthful, honest, kind and faithful. MIC teaches me right from wrong and to do an excellent job in class.

We want your help! Do you have skills and time to share?

As the Melbourne and Michael Folkes Foundation begins the first stages of its four initiatives we will need more than donations of money. Personnel are just as valuable, and our initiatives will need a variety of skills and amounts of time donated by people who care and want to share the Foundation's mission.

If you have medical, educational, building or training qualifications, skills or experience and want to be a part of the Foundation's initiatives, then we'd like to hear from you.

Please get in touch letting us know your skill set and availability via our Contact Page.
