Cape Town Building Blitz 2018

Hi Everyone!

The three of us have the pleasure of working with the Niall Mellon Foundation this year and will be travelling to the townships in Cape Town in November.

Mellon Educate was founded by Niall Mellon in 2002. Since then, 25,000 charity volunteers have worked together to build 25,000 houses, providing 125,000 Africans with new homes. Since 2013, 16 new schools have been built, providing education to 10,000 African children. We hope to play our part in this amazing cause this year. To do so, we would really love if you could support us in any way you can.

Any donation, big or small, makes a great difference. In 2017 the building blitz managed to work on 3 school projects, inluding new classrooms, a science lab, sheltered areas for the children to eat in, playgrounds, kitchens, an outdoor gym and renovated a sports field.

All of your donations go directly towards the same goals – to build a bigger, better and brighter future for thousands of African children!

Thank you,

Ben, Conor & Karen.
