Last week Adoreum were delighted to support the first ever Mellon Educate UK Fundraiser at The Hurlingham Club.
Mellon Educate mission is to provide better standards of education to 100,00 children in Africa. The charity was founded in 2002, 25,000 charity volunteers have built 25,000 houses, providing 125,000 Africans with new homes since.
Every year, Mellon Educate organises their now renowned “building blitz” trip to Africa for volunteers from all over the world to travel and lend a helping hand building better infrastructure in poor African communities.
In conjunction with the South African government, Mellon Educate have housed 125,000 local people in high-grade permanent homes, replacing dilapidated shack living conditions. Since 2013, Mellon Educate has set about improving access to better standards of education in African townships.
To date, the charity has built 16 new schools and renovated many more, providing over 10,000 young children with a better chance at life.
Last week’s fundraiser raised over £100,000 which will go along way to help children and teachers in the schools in South Africa. We are also pleased to announce that some of the Adoreum team will be heading out this year to support the build challenge.
