On Wednesday, October 10, a grant contract was signed at the Embassy of Japan by Northern Islands High School (NIHS) Principal Foster Heine and H.E Norio Saito - newly appointed Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Japan to the Republic of the Marshall Islands.
The grant is up to $88,170 funded through the Japan’s Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGP) to initiate the "Project for Construction of Vocational Classrooms in Northern Islands High School” on Wotje atoll.
The plan is to build 3 new classrooms and 2 bathrooms to accommodate NIHS’s needs for more rooms in order to enhance vocational trainings in carpentry, agriculture, and cooking for students.
With the grant been officially signed, NIHS’s emphasis on providing more classrooms for vocational teaching to students will come to reality. The new classrooms will provide a safe working place for carpentry, in-class lectures before or after field agricultural works, and in-door cooking opportunity also.
This project will, not only improve the school's environment but also increase NIHS students’ engagement to better future opportunities.
The granted project is marked the third GGP contribution to Wotje Atoll under the diplomatic relations between Japan and RMI witnessed by H.E Wotje Mayor Ota kisino, Junior Paul (Associate Commissioner for Secondary & Career Education), and Cassiano Jetnil (Associate Commissioner for Property & Maintenance).
