WE’RE BUILDING SCHOOLS THE MELLON WAY
PHASE 1 – Building blitz
The Mellon Educate Building Blitz is an annual event that involves global volunteers from Ireland, the United Kingdom and the USA. The volunteers raise funds covering the cost of the construction programme while also forming an integral part of the construction teams. In 2018, 300 international volunteers were joined by 150 Old Mutual volunteers for the first time and 100 volunteers from Tsoga Sun that were participating for the second time. The beneficiary schools in 2018 were the Hector Petersen Secondary and the Enkulekweni Primary Schools in Wallacedene in the Western Cape.
