Building An Education

Axis’ Francesca Fordham applied to the Foundation to help build two new classrooms in new schools in Cape Town, SA. Now a Site Supervisor, Fran made her first trip to Cape Town when she was an apprentice via her college, North Kent.

Fran says: “Thank you to the Axis Foundation for supporting me in raising funds for my trip to South Africa with Mellon Educate. We will be building classrooms, desks, bookshelves and a playground in two schools in one of the townships. This trip will change the lives of hundreds of thousands of children for many years to come. It is such a great cause, and I will be very proud to be representing Axis while there.”
