The Niall Mellon Trust charity was established in 2002 to provide homes for the most impoverished communities in the townships of South Africa.  Following ten successful years in Cape Town the Charity now plans to help educate children in Africa through an ambitious school building programme.

We hope you will support this charity event on April 3rd 2014 at Aqua.

Mellon Educate project was completed and officially opened in Nairobi St Catherine’s school in November 2013 as pictured below.
