Japan funds project for additional classrooms in Salfit village

Sept. 24, 2018 2:02 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 25, 2018 1:32 P.M.)
SALFIT (Ma'an) -- The Ambassador for the Palestinian Affairs and Representative of Japan to Palestine, Takeshi Okubo, visited the Farkha village, in the northern occupied West Bank district of Salfit, on Sunday, to celebrate the completion of a project funded by the Government of Japan.

According to a press release, Japan funded the Farkha village council with $89,851 to improve the learning environment in the village's secondary mixed school through Japan's Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGP).

An additional floor with four classrooms was constructed through the project, with the aim of stopping the use of the old classrooms, which threatened the lives of students.

Due to the completed project, 76 students, from 9th to 12th grade, will benefit from an improved, safe and healthy learning environment.

During Okubo's visit, he emphasized Japan's firm commitment of supporting the Palestinian people from a human security perspective, as well as the "importance of implementing social and economic development projects needed for Palestinian communities."
