The Japanese Embassy in Solomon Islands has signed a $640,000 grant aid project with Mase Primary school in North New Georgia, Western Province.
The grant is to build a two-storey classroom building and two staff houses for the school under the Japanese Grass Roots program.
Speaking at the signing ceremony this morning, Japanese Ambassador Kenichi Kimiya said the project will have a positive impact in producing more human resources in Western province.
Mr. Kimiya said another priority area of the grass root program is to support basic education through the construction of school facilities such as classrooms for students and staff houses for teachers.
Meanwhile, Head Teacher of Mase Primary School said the project will help address current classrooms and staff house issues the school is facing.
He also said the community is looking forward to completing the project.
