The University of Wales Trinity Saint David has a unique partnership with Mellon Educate, a charity founded by entrepreneur Niall Mellon which aims to dramatically improve housing and education in South Africa’s poorest neighbourhoods. The Charity has already housed more than 100,000 people in new homes and is now working with UWTSD to develop programmes to ensure South African children receive the best start in life through their education.
Every year, Mellon Educate gathers hundreds of volunteers to undertake ‘building blitzes’ where in one week they build homes and schools in the country.
From the 17th-24th November a group of volunteers will travel out to Cape Town, South Africa to help build and refurbish three schools in Khayletisha Township. This could be you!!
