mellon educate

Founded in 2002, Mellon Educate has transformed the lives of thousands of people in South African Townships in the last 20 years.

"Our mission is to bring literacy to 100,000’s of children across Africa."

Every year, Mellon Educate organises their now renowned “building blitz” trip to Africa for volunteers from all over the world to travel and lend a helping hand building better school infrastructure in poor African communities.

The charity has built/renovated 36 schools over the last 10 years and to date provides improved education for 50,000 children. They aim to offer The Mellon Educate literacy programme in literacy hubs to 100,000’s of primary school children across Southern Africa over the next 10 years.
