The Japanese Government, under its Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGP) Scheme, has extended assistance of US$228,659 for two humanitarian assistance programs. It shared US$121,025for construction of new building for Thaw Ka Myaung Youth Development Center and Monastic Middle School in Bilin Township, Mon State and US$107,634 for construction of two rural health branches in Hpa-an Township, Kayin State.
The handover and opening ceremonies of the two projects took place in Bilin Township, Mon State and in Hpa-an Township, Kayin State on 9 and 10 March 2015 respectively. Mr.Taro WATANABE, Second Secretary of the Embassy of Japan, U Zaw Min, Kayin State Chief Minister, U Saw Aung Kyaw Min, Kayin State Hluttaw Speaker, Hpa-an Township Medical Officer, Bilin Township Administrator, committee members of the construction projects, and local residents attended the ceremonies for the projects.
The school buildings in Thaw Ka Myaung Monastic Middle School were outdated and monestry buildings were used as student classrooms.
Under such conditions, the Japanese Government supported construction of a two-storey R.C building with full furniture. The project will benefit 286 students of the school.
There were no rural health branches in Pa-on village and Pawt-Htaw village of Hpa-an Township prior to this project. The medical staff had to provide medical healthcare services in rented residential houses. Under such conditions, the Japanese Government supported construction of two Sub Rural Health Centers including staff quarters with medical equipment and furniture. The project will benefit 7,745 people from four villages.
