MML CSR Approach
Over the years, MML has consistently worked towards social enhancement through voluntary projects as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility. Since 2015, MML identified with and partnered with an orphanage, Heritage of Faith and Hope Children's Home(HFH), and has supported the home in different ways to ensure the children hosted are well taken care of.
Heritage of Faith & Hope Children Resource Centre is a faith-based organization, founded in the year 2002 through a compassionate heart for orphans and vulnerable children.
The center is committed to improving the lives of vulnerable children by providing an opportunity for holistic transformation by giving them quality education
MML has also been a part of this excellent initiative at HFH by starting and helping maintain a pig farm for commercial purposes. The farm started with two pigs in 2015. And now has more than 30 pigs.
Our current project Heritage Kitchen is aimed at raising funds to help construct a kitchen and dining for the home, whose construction had started earlier but has since stalled due to lack of funds.
MML will be offering pro bono project and construction management services and will work towards ensuring successful completion and delivery of the kitchen to the home. This will include quality control, timely delivery and cost control and management up to successful handover of the kitchen. Sheffield Africa has agreed to partner with MML by providing a fully equipped commercial kitchen to include all operational appliances to serve approximately 300 persons
Equipping Youth with World Class skills in the Construction industry
Actis & MML have partnered with Arc Skills an international Skills Development Centre to bridge the skills gap in the growing construction industry. This training programme was offered to 300 local youth, 42 per cent of whom had no employment history. They are receiving technical training on construction skills including masonry, plastering, and plumbing.
The training is conducted on a monthly basis and is aligned with the timeline of the ongoing construction project and the skilled labor needs of the project in a ‘just-in-time’ fashion. Students then receive an internationally accredited certification from the Australian Vocational Training and Employment Group (AVTEG) on completion of the training.
The internationally accredited course is partly theoretical but mostly practical, based on a well-respected Australian curriculum. Students must pass an exam to receive a certificate. The programme also includes a Health & Safety module to ensure students are educated to keep themselves and their fellow workers safe, and what a safe construction site looks like. It will last approximately one year.
