3 September 2010

Representing the Government of Japan, Mr.Yoshimitsu Kawata, Deputy Head of Mission, Embassy of Japan in Nuku'alofa officially handover the Project for Upgrading of Vaotu'u Primary School on Friday, September 3rd.

Japan, under its Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Project (GGP), funded a total of US$46,797 (TOP$85,000) to build two new classrooms, four toilet blocks and a 5,000 liters water tank on concrete base for Vaotu'u Primary School. The funding also covered refurbishment work to existing classrooms and three staff quarters.

The construction work was carried out by Tafolo & Associates Ltd.

Vaotu'u Primary School since its establishment in 1939 is managed by the Free Wesleyan Church. The school's intake of students grows every year thus require the additional classrooms and facilities.

The Government of Japan's assistance indicates its commitment to address basic need at the grassroots level which includes education, health, water supply, vocational training, sanitary environment and rural infrastructure.

It is hoped that this assistance will contribute to further strengthen the friendly ties between the Government and the people of Japan and the Kingdom of Tonga.
