Japan assists in new classroom building in Gorkha

Kathmandu, March 28: The inauguration and handover ceremony of the new classroom building of Shree Rameshwary Secondary School took place in Gorkha district on March 28. Ambassador of Japan to Nepal Kikuta Yutaka attended the ceremony.

The new classroom building has been constructed as part of a project supported by the Government of Japan under the Grant Assistance for Japanese NGO Projects scheme. The project is being implemented by Japanese NGO ChildFund Japan, and is currently in its second year of a three-year project.

The project aims to improve the learning environment and increase students’ attendance in Gorkha district, not only by constructing classroom buildings, but also by providing training to improve the capacity of teachers and programmes to support the establishment of community-based child- friendly schools.

On the occasion, Ambassador Kikuta congratulated and appreciated the efforts of all those involved in the project. Ambassador expressed his hope that the new school building will be properly managed and maintained, that the various training programmes will continue and that the learning environment at the school will become even more child-friendly in the future.

Ambassador Kikuta also mentioned that this is not the first time that Japan has supported this school, as there is another classroom building that was rebuilt under the Emergency School Reconstruction Project after the 2015 earthquake.

Ambassador expressed his expectation that the school, which has a close relationship with Japan, will promote disaster management initiatives and that these initiatives will spread to other schools in Gorkha district and throughout Nepal. He added that he hoped the students of this school would play a leading role in people-to-people relations between the two countries as well as in the development of Nepal in the future. #Nepal
