Japan grants financial assistance to build Sankhuwasabha classroom

KATHMANDU: The Japanese Ambassador to Nepal, KIKUTA Yutaka, has signed a grant contract with Lakpa Nurbu Sherpa, Chairman of NPO Nepal Volunteer Social Service, for the construction of new classrooms in Sankhuwasabha district.

The signing ceremony took place at the Japanese Embassy in Kathmandu on Thursday.

The project is funded under the Japanese government’s Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGP) and involves a grant of US$185,971 (approximately NPR 23.2 million). It aims to improve the educational environment by constructing eleven classrooms.

The project will help students who previously had to study in deteriorated school buildings, the Japanese embassy said in its press release issued Thursday.

Shree Himalaya Secondary School was established in 1960 and today more than 380 students are studying at this school. The state of current school buildings is dangerous with cracks in the walls and leaks in the roof.

These unsafe and worn-out classrooms prevent students from concentrating on their studies. The project will be managed by NPO Nepal Volunteer Social Service, read the press release.

The Japanese Embassy is confident that the project will provide a safe and enjoyable learning environment for students and improve the quality of education for students. “We hope that this aid to the educational institute will further strengthen the friendship between the people of Japan and Nepal now and for future generations,” the embassy said.
