Japan will provide $470,799 in grant assistance to help Myanmar build eight more basic education schools in two regions and one state.
The government of Japan will provide the grant under its Grass-Roots Human Security Projects (GGP) scheme, the Japanese embassy in Yangon said in a statement.
Mikio Numata, ambassador of Japan to Myanmar, who is also the chairman of each construction committee signed the grant contracts last week.
The schools will be built in two villages in Wakema township in Ayeyawaddy region, one village in Dala township in Yangon region and five villages in Mindat township in Chin state, the Japanese embassy said.
The schools are expected to provide more than 2, 860 students with better learning and sanitation environment, the statement said.
