Educational Assistance Programs


"The Melbourne and Michael Folkes Foundation to me means that I should be Mighty In Character. It encourages me to be strong in everything I do. It helps me to be confident in myself and in everything I do. It helps me to believe in myself and to do my school work. It also helps me to achieve my goals and set them the right way. It also encourages me to build my faith, joy and peace."

Omario Gordon, Student, Mount Waddy Primary School, Friendship, Jamaica


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.
