A JAPAN-FUNDED GRANT WILL ASSIST WITH THE CONSTRUCTION OF NEW FACILITIES.

A project which seeks to improve the environment for children and teachers at the Piaye Combined School has taken flight.

With the help of the Government of Japan through its Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects, the Piaye Combined School will seek to build new washroom and lunchroom facilities, as well as renovate the staffroom with a grant of US$62,189.

In a ceremony on January 16, the acting principal of the Piaye Combined School said the health and safety of students and staff is paramount. Another priority is to promote a healthy eating environment and reduce risks of infectious diseases. In keeping with this, a lunch area with lunch tables will be constructed under the project.

Parliamentary representative for Choiseul/Saltibus, Hon. Bradly Felix, expressed gratitude to the government and people of Japan for the assistance. HE Ambassador Tatsuo Hirayama from the Embassy of Japan said the project will improve access to a quality education.

The aim of the Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects is to provide financial assistance to non-profit, development-oriented organizations to implement community development projects, which directly benefits people at a grassroots level.
