Get Involved

We are able to do what we do because of people like you.

Check out how you can get involved by sponsoring a student.

It costs a lot of money to run Mechanics for Africa, and not least because our students receive bursaries of 80% of their fees: we provide our students with a good meal every day, we pay our staff well, and we have the usual running costs, registration costs, examination fees. The list goes on. It is through the generosity of people like you in the UK that we have educated over 300 students since 2002, and we grow every year.

Our vision is that by 2020 we will have expanded our college from our current body of 70 students to 120 across the two years, which means adding extra class rooms. We want to start new courses, and bring on new staff. We also expect to expand our commercial operations to include corporate training and extra workshop facilities, both of which should bring extra money into the college to allow us to expand organically and become less dependent on overseas donations.

But all of this takes initial investment: whether it's sponsoring students, donating equipment, buying bricks, or helping fund a lecturer, your investment in us is an investment in the young people of Zambia. Please help us continue to make positive change in Zambia by partnering with us.
