Japanese assistance for reconstruction of school

By Our Reporter
Japan embassy has signed a grant assistance contract for the reconstruction of the Shree Akala Secondary School in Gorkha district.
Ambassador of Japan Masashi Ogawa and Tara Nath Upreti, the principal, signed the contract.
The support comes from the Japanese Government’s Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGP), and comes as an addition to the earthquake recovery support, which has been provided to the Nepal government.
The grant assistance of USD 90,760 will be used to reconstruct one school building with eight classrooms. The building was one of four structures at the school that had been severely affected by the 2015 earthquake.
The new structure will have two stories, with the capacity to accommodate eight grades. Japan government hopes that the project will provide a safe learning environment for students who currently studying in the temporary learning centers (TLC) and contribute towards improvement in the quality of education.
The Embassy of Japan believes this project will contribute towards ‘Build Back Better’ and will provide better educational opportunities to students for a brighter future. The Embassy also believes the project can further enhance the bilateral relationship between Japan and Nepal.
