Our story begins in 1896, when Henriette Michaelis and her sister Carolina Michaelis, together, gave life to the first Michaelis dictionary. Years later their legacy can be seen between the walls of the Michaelis Foundation for Global Education.
Through a diverse series of educational initiatives and hands-on bilingual project-based learning experiences, the non-profit organization has been empowering and engaging educators, young learners, and aspiring aerospace professionals from around the world for many years. “I strongly believe in the strength of good examples and the impact of words. I am sure that our work through the MFGE can touch a life or change a child's future!”, said Carla Michaelis, founder of the organization.
Though this year has been full of uncertainties and consternation, hope can still be found in the heart of the organization. Between projects and partnerships, the MFGE team has been making exciting plans for the year to come. Jefferson Michaelis, said that he believes that there are many possibilities waiting to be found right around the corner. “All we have to do is take every single one of them, hoping that at least one will turn into something extraordinary”, he pointed out.
We are certain that students and the teachers supported by our projects are empowered to make a difference in their classrooms, in their communities, and around the world. - MFGE
