Procurement of materials for the building process is done at the Mzuzu office of the Eva Demaya Centre. In Mzuzu most of the materials are readily available in bulk compared to Rumphi, the town nearest to where the project is being carried out.
Mr Lameck Munthali is the procurement manager and he goes around town to different shops to collect quotations for the requested needed. Thereafter the 4-person procurement committee sits down to compare prices and selects the best mix of affordable prices and good quality materials; the materials order is then placed. The collection of building materials is done by the procurement officer together with one member of the procurement committee. After collecting the materials from the suppliers, they are transported to the project site which is about 100 km from Mzuzu City. The materials are kept at the stores on the building site after being delivered, and are supervised by the Stores Clerk.
The photos here show the latest progress on the buiding site: the first school building is roofed with iron sheets, while the second school block is at beam level.
