Sad news for MIET AFRICA

Sad news for MIET AFRICA

It was with great sadness that we learnt of the passing of Selwyn Roy Bean in the early hours of the morning on 3 October 2013.

Selwyn has served as the audit committee chairperson for MIET AFRICA over a number of years providing the organization with invaluable input.

Professor John Volmink, MIET AFRICA’s chairperson, noted that “Selwyn’s passing is a huge personal loss and an even greater loss to MIET. His invaluable contribution to the organization flowed naturally from the kind of person he was and the values he upheld. I salute him and know that we all will miss him tremendously.”

The entire organization shares these sentiments and our thoughts and prayers are with Jeanette and the entire family.

Say not in grief “he is no more,” but live in thankfulness that he was. (Hebrew proverb)

Leadership change at MIET AFRICA

Leadership change at MIET AFRICA

After an exciting year at MIET AFRICA, our CEO, Thobile Sifunda has made the decision to continue serving the development agenda in a different capacity.

Her commitment to MIET AFRICA and the work that we do is much appreciated and we have greatly benefitted from the knowledge and expertise she has brought to the organisation over the past year.

Before joining in a full-time capacity, Thobile was already very much a part of the MIET AFRICA family, having collaborated with us on many programmes and projects.

We have no doubt that we will continue to join forces whenever possible to ensure that our common aim of improving the lives of children is achieved.

At a recent farewell function, MIET AFRICA Chairperson, Professor John Volmink wished Thobile well on behalf of the Board and staff of the organisation, ending his speech with a well-known blessing:

May the road rise to meet you,
