||The grant signing ceremony of the Grant Contract for the Project for the Construction of Munje Fish Banda by Eco Ethics International Kenya was held in Mombasa. This is a unique project which involves construction of a fish banda and a toilet block, purchase of water tanks, solar freezers including a fish drying machine. Munje Village, where almost all the households are engaged in fishing is located approximately 60km south from Mombasa Town. This project is to improve the working conditions and income of the fishing community of the Village through development of fisheries infrastructure for fish handling and storage. For the purpose of fish storage, SHARP, a Japanese company, will provide solar freezers and solar panels for this project.
The ceremony started with recitation of poems by the School Eco Clubs members. There were also speeches from officials who expressed their gratitude to Japan.
While giving his remarks, H.E. Terada congratulated members of Eco Ethics International Kenya (EEIK) for their success in getting the grant and praised them for their activities. He urged the grantee to implement the project that would improve the welfare of the people of Munje Village.
