H.E Mr. Toshihisa Takata, the Ambassador of Japan to the Republic of Kenya signed a grant contract with Lenya Primary school in Nyang’oma, Bondo District for the project for the expansion of Lenya Primary School. The grant is to finance for the construction of 8 new classrooms, an administration block, toilets, setting up of water tanks, and purchase of furniture. At the completion of the GGP project, the students at Lenya Primary School will be able to enjoy new permanent classrooms and use comfortable school furniture.

The ceremony was attended by the Member of Parliament Hon. Dr. Oburu Oginga, District Officer, who praised Japan’s efforts to help Kenya implementing its Free Primary Education Policy by improving and expanding the existing facilities of the school. Mr. Takata congratulated Lenya Primary school on the successful application of project and he explained how the Asian countries including Japan had developed economically by investing many resources in education. “It is this experience that we hope to share with the people of Kenya.” Said Mr. Takata.

At the end of ceremony, the community also expressed its gratitude to Japan for assisting the school. They said that lack of proper educational facilities had led to the drop out of students especially the teenagers who felt uncomfortable and out of place. The project will increase more students and bring better future for the children in Nyang’oma.
