The official handing over ceremony for “The Project for Improvement of Educational and Hygienic Environment for Kondoro Primary School” was held in Kondoro Primary School, Rongo sub-county, Migori County on 26th of September, 2019.
With the objective of improving the educational environment, the project received a grant amount of USD 27,514 (approx. Kshs 2.8 Million) which was used for the construction of 2 classrooms, 6 toilets, and provision of 50 pupils’ desks.
During the handing over ceremony, H.E. Mr. Ryoichi Horie, Ambassador of Japan to Kenya, congratulated Kondoro Primary School for the successful completion of the project. Ambassador Mr. Horie said this project demonstrates the strong ties of friendship between Japan and Kenya.
Before this project was implemented, the school had many problems, such as lack of classrooms and pupils’ dropped out of the school. However, the construction of the facilities improved the educational environment. The school came 2nd place in Rongo sub-county in the national unified examination in 2018.
The Ambassador closed his statement with a message for the pupils, “I really hope these pupils study more and work hard to become Kenya’s leaders of the future”, and he added “I hope Kenya becomes a donor to the other African countries and other developing countries, as Japan once was”.
