The project was funded under Japan’s popular grassroots human security project (GGP) grant program to the tune of US$84,347 (approximately 216,663.24 SAT), which was used to renovate the 9 halls existing classrooms, 1 administration room, library, reconstruction of the toilet block and installation of a drinking water installation.

The main objective of the project is to provide an improved educational environment that aligns with the key priority areas for quality education in the Government of Samoa’s five-year national plan; Pathway for the Development of Samoa FY2021/22-FY2025/26.
