The project, made possible with financial assistance from Swiss’ based NGO International Project Aid, will play a vital role in continuous professional development of teachers, according to CYD executive director James Gondwe.

“The curriculum is ever changing,” said Gondwe. “So too teaching methods. We hope the facility will provide opportunities for schools in this [Ezondweni] zone to effectively utilize the centre and help improve examination results in the zone.”

According to information Nyasa Times sourced, the development centre will benefit 17 schools, 95 teachers and 5 970 learners.

The community, Gondwe divulged, contributed resources such as human labour towards the project.

Mzimba North District Education Manager (DEM) Kossam Mphande described CYD’s gesture as way to go.

“During teachers’ meetings learners have been learning under trees as classrooms were being used,” said Mphande. “This will now be history.”

Ezondweni Zone was identified as one of the five education zones in the district of Mzimba that do not have TDC facilities in an assessment that was conducted by CYD in July 2014.

Kanthu ako…this is a family organization. It is run like a personal hawker and mini cashgate is likely to occur. Husband the ED, wife Finance and Admin, what do you expect.


A teacher (comment number 8) mwinatu munanyambita nawo. K10 million is not a joke. This project can not be worthy K10m. Just imagine if Mombera university will need K100m so can this block be K10m? Osatipusitsa munadya nawo basi.


Utter rubbish, there is no way K10.5 million can be spent on this building. In addition the community provided free labour? Thieves.


K10m? this mini bus stage?


Kodi ndekuti pa school pati ana 350 okha? Ndipo pa ma school 17 school imodzi ili ndi aphunzitsi 5 okha? Tathokoza kwa omangitsa blockyo koma ndalama zolowa zachuluka


its just that the report lacks some important information.. not all the 10m went on the bulding.. the bulding is fully furnished and equipped with all library resources worth millions from the same 10m… I was there I witnessed the handover ceremony and I praise this small NGO for the job well done

This seems to be the best joke in my life


So if u want to build an executive house have a huge sum.
A 2 roomed block = K10.5m
Therefore a 6-8 roomed will need…
K10.5million Z k1million
