For the past year the building team have been kept busy with completion of the football pitch, vital maintenance works across Chilomoni and converting containers for temporary facilities. But now construction work can begin again in earnest with the start of the Beetech Data Building.

When completed the building will house the latest Beehive enterprise; Beetech will provide vital employment for many graduating students from JPII, they will be taking on contracts to process data for corporations, not only from within Malawi but from around the world.
