£1,920raised of £3,500 target by 34 supporters

Weʼre raising £3,500 to provide a quality education facility for local underprivileged children in a township just outside of Cape Town - BUILDING BLITZ 2018

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


I will be accompanying a group of construction students that I work with at North Kent College to South Africa in November 2018. The project we are undertaking aims to, with the help of an army of volunteers, complete the construction of a school in a township just outside of Cape Town, providing a quality education facility for local underprivileged children. The initiative, lead by Mellon Educate, has built and sustained 18 schools and 25,000 houses since 2002, and this specific project must be completed in no more than just one week! Stay tuned for several fundraising events that will be occurring over the coming weeks and months, but any and all contributions to the attached JustGiving page would be hugely appreciated, I will of course keep you updated brick-by-brick as I actually do a hard day’s work for once, come November.

Please see videos below of what Mellon Educate have acheived and how my time will be spent on this project. Thank you for your time and patience Debs xxx

    As some of you may know for many years my passion has been to volunteer in a township to make a difference in anyway possible to underprivileged families and now, with the help of some amazing people including the Charity Mellon Educate, I can fulfil my dream.
