The Japanese Government, under its Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGP) Scheme, has granted US$71,543 for the Project for Construction of Hta Naung Gone Village Basic Education Branch High School in Pwint Phyu Township, Magway Region.
This is the first handover ceremony for the reconstruction and rehabilitation of 493 schools requested by the Myanmar Government to the Japanese Government.
The handover ceremony of the project took place in Pwint Phyu Township on 8th November 2016. Mr. Hideaki MATSUO, Counselor of the Embassy of Japan, Dr. Aung Moe Nyo, Chief Minister of Magway Region, Committee Chairperson, committee members of the construction project, and local residents attended the ceremony.
Due to the lack of sufficient classrooms, students of Hta Naung Gone Village Basic Education Branch High School have been studying in congested classrooms for years and often have been disturbed by noise caused in classrooms. Furthermore, the flood occurred in July 2015 caused serious damages to the school Building 2, which nearly collapsed and was in dangerous condition for the students to study.
To address these challenges, the Japanese Government, under its GGP scheme, provided funding for construction of a 120’x30’ one-storey R.C.C building with full furniture.
The project will benefit 728 students of the school and promote disaster prevention in the area.
