“In Zambia it is hard for women to get extra education, especially when our family is not rich, so I was pleased when I was accepted at Mechanics For Africa. The education I got here was great, and praise God I passed my exams and am now a fully-qualified mechanic! Thanks to MfA I have a good future.” Esther , Student 2011-2013
“For me, I wanted to be a mechanic since I was a young boy. I heard about Mechanics for Africa from a former student and I applied. The course is not easy, and we are taught to be disciplined which is all part of preparing us for working life. I think that is why so many MfA students get good jobs, because employers know we are taught to work hard.” Emmanuel , Student 2013-2015
