Overcrowding will no longer be an issue for students of Nausori Special School as three classroom blocks have been constructed through the assistance of the Japanese Government.
The Japanese Government provided $167,880 to Nausori Special School for the construction three classrooms under its Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects Programme.
First Secretary and Head of Development Cooperation at the Japanese Embassy Genta Yamada says the school has been dealing with an increasing school roll .
He says the school asked for assistance for the construction of new classroom block, which consist of two classrooms and a pre-vocational training room as the school’s existing 5-classrooms could not accommodate current students and often resulted in overcrowding.
Meanwhile, Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects Programme has been widely implemented in areas such as education, water supply, health and transportation since 1990.
Yamada says to date, 372 projects have been implemented under this programme with an approximate value of over $50 million.
