Corporate partners of MfA: In the MfA workshop we have completed a huge amount of work for the Kurger Veolia fleet of vehicles. MfA has worked on 3-4 cars a month over the last two years- keeping the whole fleet on the road to build the water and sewage treatment sites around Ndola. Kurger Veolia are now ramping down their works, however it has been a pleasure to work with them and we thank you for the excellent reference and feedback of the work MfA has completed. The MfA CEO met with Soren Sondergaard (Managing Director) and William Kang'ombe (Transport Coordinator).
Feature Friday: Travelling is Zambia can have its challenges. We had a flat tyre on a very rural and remote road. With still a long journey ahead I wanted to make sure we carried a spare and so at the next small town. We picked up a good second hand tyre which was fitted by hand and worked very well. Amazing what you can do with a crow bar and an old leaf spring!
MfA has completed another successful mechanics high school course before the start of the next term. 7 high school students joined us from Ndola and Mkushi and they have learnt so much. Lots of practical experience and understanding of how vehicle components fit together.
Feature Friday- Hot season is now beginning and with no rain for 4-5 months, everything around us is very, very dry! At MfA we have had to deal with more fires around our compound. This fire was very close to the fence and nearly set the nsaka alight from the falling ash on a Sunday. A small team on site helped to keep MfA and our neighbours safe and ensure that no damage was done. Great work!
MfA has just held our official opening ceremony for the new Beit-funded classroom block and computer suite! We had the privilege of hosting Sir Andrew and Julie Pocock, David and Fiona Long and Bill and Rose Osborn.
To our MfA students, we are looking forward to seeing and welcoming you back on Monday for the start of term 3! It promises to be a big term with the end of year exams. The MfA family and supporters are praying for you and wishing you all best! We know you are going to do us proud!
Bridget Kapanda and three other MfA second year students are on placement with Superdoll in Ndola. All working hard working and doing an excellent job. Well done Bridget!
Evans and Joseph, MfA second year students, are on placement with BL&D Equipment. They are working in the BL&D workshop and are working very hard and learning massive amount of skills. How to fit caterpillar tracks and fix trucks. Well done and keep up the good work.
MfA says a massive thank you to Julius and Raphael for their hard work on all the MfA building projects. We have now completed all the projects. The quality of work has been excellent, helping to provide an amazing working environment for staff and students. Both have worked so faithfully with our Construction Manager, Fred and will be missed. Blessings with the next step.
