Wednesday 02 December 2015
The UK Department for International Development is providing £7 million of capital funds to support the Malawi government in the remaining construction of primary schools at approximately 48 sites.
During an initial 15-month period, IMC Worldwide will work with Malawian firm Henderson and Partners to support the Education Infrastructure Management Unit within the government in managing the architectural firms, contractors, and contracts currently involved in the delivery of the schools.
IMC will also provide capacity building services for the EIMU.
“This project aims to ensure the creation of good-quality learning environments that offer suitable water and sanitation facilities at roughly 48 sites, as well as Information Technology rooms at some of those sites,” says IMC Consultant and Project Manager Nuria Bosca. “And we expect that these improved learning sites will offer educational opportunities to more than 30,000 children in Malawi.”
