I was lucky enough to meet a real life saint in Niall Mellon who along with 22,000 volunteers has changed the face of the South African housing crisis. In a ten year period he has built 25,000 homes in the townships of South Africa and rehoused over 125,000 people/families. His story is amazing.

In 2013, inspired by a meeting with Mandela he decided to stop building houses and focus on addressing the education needs of the most impoverished African Children. And so starts the Mellon Educate story.
To date 5 schools have been built, hundred of teachers mentored and re-trained and over 4,500 children have seen their pass rates for English and Maths increase significantly.
In November of 2015 i was part of a team of the first 100 UK based volunteers to participate in a Schools Building Blitz week in the Eastern Cape. In 2017 i'm going back again. I need you help.
As part of my commitment I need to raise £4,000 so I can plant the bricks of change in this impoverished part of the world.
If you would like to help my by making a small donation (think of it as planting your own brick) I would be truly honoured.
