Selection of Distribution Point

Selection of distribution point is one of the challenging task for JEN team. It is a systematic and consultative process described as under

•Planning session
•Identification of Distribution Point
•Assessment by AIM Officer for safety and security
•Final selection and approval by PDMA and 101 Division of army

JEN team holds a brief planning session before identification of Distribution point. In this meeting AIM Unit, Program Unit and admin/logistics and finance unit take active participation and each unit/department give their valuable inputs.

The Geographical location has great importance. The Distribution point should be easily and equally accessible for beneficiaries, vendor, JEN team and the other stakeholders. There should be proper shelter which protects beneficiaries from different elements like rain, sun stroke, violence, militancy attacks etc. The workplace safety and security is most important for smooth, peaceful and successful completion of distributions activities.  JEN team places banners/pamphlets or sign boards and also request to government for police which are helpful to control crowed during distribution.

Service time is also important factor and distribution activity should be completed in time well before dusk. Transparency of project activities like registration of beneficiaries, token distributions and package distribution among beneficiaries is most important factor which reduces the chances of conflicts and distrust between JEN, beneficiaries and other stakeholders.   Active coordination with stakeholders including PDMA, district authorities and army is helpful in reducing the miscommunications and smooth functioning of project activities.

Post distribution evaluation session is also held in office for the purpose of addressing gapes and improvements in future.
