The Mellon Educate Building Blitz
16 - 23 November 2019, Mfuleni Township
As part of AfricaCom’s sustainability programme, we have partnered with Mellon Educate UK to support its incredible volunteer- led “Building Blitz” which takes place immediately after AfricaCom. This year the charity will be working hard to improve facilities at two schools in Mfuleni Township near Cape Town, from 16 - 23 November 2019.
Join us for the experience of a lifetime by helping to build a school for hundreds of disadvantaged children. The Mellon Educate Building Blitz offers an incredible learning experience where volunteers can develop unique skills in a very different environment. As well making a huge difference to the lives of so many, there is the chance to get real insight into some of the challenges faced by local families, with organised group visits to their own homes. The week itself is also a fantastic team building opportunity with lots of potential networking with other companies taking part.
AfricaCom has also committed to help raise funds for an ICT unit for a township school. If you are interested in this very unique co-sponsorship opportunity and would like to find out more, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
