This year we are back in Khayelitsha, Cape Town’s largest township. A sprawling mass of shacks situated just a stone’s throw from the wealthy suburbs that are home to South Africa’s rich and famous. In November 2017, we will return to work under the banner of Mellon Educate and this time we are going for the hat-trick!
We will be sending the Mellon volunteers to regenerate not one, not two but THREE sites;
Usasazu High School, Sosebenza Primary and Sobambisana Primary Schools.
Education is paramount to creating sustainable development and giving children the best possible start in life. Creating a safe environment for children to learn in is the foundation for this. Usasazu High School provides an education for 1,300 learners, the majority of whom come from one of last years blitz schools, Ummangaliso, Sosebenza for 1,000 learners and Sobambisana for 1,300 learners.
None of this would be possible without the hard work of YOU, our volunteers. We can’t wait to roll up our sleeves and get stuck in with familiar and fresh faces for another amazing week in November. We are very close to closing the blitz for this year so if you have not signed up and wish to experience the unique magic of the blitz week, please get in touch as soon as possible. We are raring to go and hope you are too!
