||The Handing Over Ceremony of the Project for the Reconstruction of Pefa Nzoia Primary School whose Grant Contract was signed in January 2012, was held in Bungoma County with the presence of the Ambassador of Japan to the Republic of Kenya, H.E. Toshihisa Takata.
The grant provided school facilities including 8 new classrooms, an administration block, 3 toilet blocks and furniture in order to improve the educational environment for pupils. Before the provision of this grant, the Pefa Nzoia primary School had not been equipped with sufficient school facilities. They held their classes in second hand tents handed from refugee camps and in classrooms made with a mud walled block.
After his arrival at the site, H.E. Takata cut the ribbon and unveiled a plaque, and then toured the new school buildings. The ceremony, which began with song and dance performed by pupils, was attended by the area MP Hon. Alfred Sambu, Bungoma County Governor Hon. Mr. Kenneth Lusaka, and many guests. They all expressed their gratitude to Japan in their speeches.
H.E. Takata responded to them with his speech in the Swahili language which made the audience enthusiastic. He congratulated Pefa Nzoia Primary School for the successful completion of the project and appreciated dedication and hard work of all the stakeholders which made it possible to complete the project in one year. Finally, he encouraged pupils to always remember all the stakeholders’ efforts made into this project and to get good results in KCPE.
