RAMALLAH, February 13, 2018 (WAFA) – A Grant Contract for one Grassroots Human Security Project (GGP) funded by the Japanese government was signed on Monday for the construction of five rainwater harvesting cisterns for seven elementary and secondary schools in Hebron and Bethlehem.

Takeshi Okubo, Ambassador for the Palestinian Affairs and Representative of Japan to Palestine, and representative of Palestinian Hydrology Group signed the GGP contract at the Representative Office of Japan to Palestine in Ramallah for a total amount of $86,000.

This project aims at providing better water supply, overcoming the crisis of water shortage, and thus achieving an appropriate educational environment for the current students, said a press release issued by the representative office of Japan to Palestine

Once the project is implemented, about 2646 students and teachers in the seven targeted schools will benefit from the stable and sufficient supply of clean water, said the release.

Okubo emphasized Japan’s firm commitment of supporting the Palestinian people from human security perspective as well as the importance of implementing social and economic development projects needed for Palestinian communities.

He congratulated the Palestinian Hydrology Group and wished them success in their project.
