19 December marks a significant leap forward for the community of Savai'i as Japan assisted with the improvement of facilities at the Savai'i Centre of the University of the South Pacific (USP), a project worth up to USD185,862 (approximately SAT499,000) provided under its Grant Assistance for Grass-roots Human Security Projects.
Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Japan to Samoa, H.E. Mr. SENTA Keisuke handed over the new Savai'i Centre to Professor Pal Ahluwhalia, Vice Chancellor and President of USP in the presence of Aeau Chris Hazelman, CEO, Ministry of Education, Sports and Culture, community members and distinguished guests.
The project was dedicated to the renovation of the existing centre building and toilet block, encompasses comprehensive repairs to roofing, ceiling, walling, flooring and more.
The Savai'i Centre, now enhanced through Japan’s assistance, will be a beacon of knowledge accessible to the broader community. Moreover, this signifies Japan’s commitment to not only supporting academic endeavors but also fostering a spirit of inclusivity, allowing the benefits of education to reach everywhere.
Japan’s GGP programme embodies Japan’s commitment to fostering human security and addressing the specific needs of communities since its inception in 1991.
