Falelima Primary School in Savai’i is the lucky recipient of a newly reconstructed school building which opened on Friday.
On March 10th earlier this year, a grant of up to US$90,566 was agreed to fund this project, between the Primary School committee and the Embassy of Japan, whereas any additional cost is the committee’s responsibility.
The project is meant to build a new building with eight classrooms, a staff room and a library.
The ambassador himself, Tuimaugaoalii Kazumasa Shibuta mentioned that Japan government is committed to assisting Samoa in all sectors of development as identified in its strategy for development.
“Japan aligns its funding with priorities outlined in the Strategy for Development of Samoa which lists Education as a priority,”.
Many Primary Schools have benefited from this very helpful scheme, given that our children need to be comfortable in their classrooms, because it also motivates them to learn and prioritise education. Japan has been working in partnership with the government of Samoa since 1991 to further develop such grassroots and human security projects. It has been nothing but to strengthen the ties between the two governments, and importantly, ensuring that Samoa accelerates higher level for improving quality life to cater for young generations’ needs.
