About Us

Improving education, the Mellon Way

Mellon Educate is a registered non-profitorganization (NPO) that works with the South African government, to identify, transform and improve the quality of education at under-resourced schools across the country.

We do this by working closely with government and schools to develop and implement programmes that positively impact on the entire school value chain: learner assistance, educator training, school management and leadership development,curriculum support, parent and community participation. We also take responsibility for the construction and upgrading of school buildings.

Measuring our Success

We measure our success on improved learner achievement,improved school attendance of both learners and educators; decreased drop-out rates; better learner and teacher morale and wellbeing; and higher levels of parental and community participation.

Reaching our highly ambitious target will only be possible with the help and support of Corporate South Africa, individual donors and volunteers. We’re appealing to you to help us make quality education accessible to South Africa’s most needy children.
