Japan provides educational grants

The Japanese government yesterday agreed to provide more than US$250,000 in educational funding at a grant-signing ceremony at its embassy in Phnom Penh.

Japanese Ambassador Kuroki Masafumi signed grant agreements worth $254,113 to support three Cambodian educational organisations with funding provided through Japan’s economic cooperation framework.

“Even though right now Japan has a natural disaster, we still continue to offer grants to support the agreed projects in Cambodia,” said Kuroki Masafumi.

According to a statement from the Japanese embassy, the Pre-School Teacher Training Centre in Phnom Penh has been allocated $85,300, the Prey Veng Regional Teacher Training Centre will receive $70,225 and the Phnom Penh Municipal Department of Education, Youth and Sport will receive $98,588.

Prime Minister Hun Sen is today expected to preside over a signing ceremony for the Japanese government to extend a $94 million grant for development projects and poverty alleviation.
