He recalled that after the mudslide disaster, Japan initially donated relief items to the mudslide survivors. He said: “we are here again today to help affected communities recover from the disaster.”

He said the Government and People of Japan is committed to support Sierra Leone’s recovery efforts adding that Japan’s intervention in the education, health, energy and agriculture sectors has significantly improved the general living standards of the people of Sierra Leone.

“This time, we expect the grant to improve on the learning environment of children attending the St. Paul Primary School at Regent and the Mohamed Jondy Islamic Junior Secondary School,” he informed his audience.

He called on the school’s managements to make sure the projects are successfully implemented and urged the school children to take their studies seriously.
Also speaking was the Country Director, Street Child – Sierra Leone, Kelfala Kargbo. He maintained that his organization was established in 2008 to provide support to 100 street kids in Makeni in northern Sierra Leone. He added that his organization over the years has helped in improving the welfare of many children across the country.

He said education is one of the key components of Street Child’s focus and praised the Japanese Embassy for their intervention and assured that the two projects will be successfully implemented for the benefit of the children of the aforementioned schools and for children in Sierra Leone generally.

A pupil of the Mohamed Jondy Islamic Junior Secondary School in Waterloo thanked Japan Embassy for their support. She added that the school is not conducive for learning and lacks adequate space to accommodate the school children and make space for others that want to attend the school but cannot be admitted because of lack of space.
