THE Japanese Embassy signed a project valued at K482,000 with two schools from West New Britain (WNB) and Southern Highlands (SHP) on Wednesday.
The project was funded through the Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Project (GGP) of the Government of Japan.
Haella Primary School located in the Talasea LLG of WNB and Posulim Primary School in the Karinz LLG of SHP are facing bigger rolls, the result being space shortage.
The project will include a two-storey four-block classroom with office building (construction), a single storey two-block classroom with office building (Rrnovation) for Haella and two single-storey two-block classroom with office building, four water tanks and desks for 80 for Posulim Primary school.
Ambassador of Japan to Papua New Guinea Hiroharu Iwasaki said the signing for the education projects was a significant milestone for the people of the Kulungi and Posulim villages where the schools were located.
“I firmly believe that, our grant assistance will help ease classroom shortages faced by these schools and to ensure the provision of classroom buildings to accommodate the increased number of students, with better learning environment,” he said.
