Educational Assistance Programs


"First of all, I want to tell the Melbourne and Michael Folkes Foundation thanks for everything they have done. It means to me that I am going to be a good person and be respectful to everyone around me. It also encourages me to be a hardworking, caring and honest person. I will excel in my school work, my relationship with God and allow my true potential to shine. I believe in myself that anything is possible. I will be respectful to my mother and father so that my days can be long on this earth."

Our foundation provides assistance with tuition fees and the provision of educational resources to deserving students to enable them to meet their financial obligations throughout their educational pursuit thus removing financial barriers to achievement.

Teachers at the school also benefit, as we  provide educational resources to include, but are not limited to, books, computers etc. so that teachers can enhance their teaching and the students have a competitive platform from which they are technologically up to date in their quest for knowledge.
