A primary school in remote South Guadalcanal has received assistance of over $600,000.00 to build a two-storey classroom building for the school.
Viso Primary School received funding assistance of $630,982.00 from the Japanese Grassroots and Human Security Project yesterday.
Speaking yesterday at a signing ceremony for the funding, Japanese Charge’ d’ Affaires Tomohiro Odai says the double story classroom building will create space for five classrooms and office for primary school students from grade one to six.
Mr Odai says the children have suffered from the lack of adequate school facilities necessary for studying.
“One of the priority areas of assistance under the Grassroots and Human Security Scheme in Solomon Islands is supporting basic education through the construction of school facilities such as classrooms for students, staff houses for teachers. We believe that this school project produces a large number of human resource especially for the development and prosperity of Solomon Islands.”
