"April 14th, 2014 was a very special day to me because Michael Folkes explained to the Mt Waddyians how he would help us with our school fees, lunches and books. This Foundation will make me maintain my grades and become more focused and develop much more in my work. This Foundation will help my mother a lot with my school fee and sending me to school. This foundation is like a gift to me. It will make me proud and not just me but my family too, as well as my teachers who have helped me from grade one through to grade six and teaching me right from wrong. This is a chance for me to shine and to become a better person in life. "
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.
