Japan assists Women’s Cooperative Association
for Food Processing in Wadi Al-Taym
The Embassy of Japan announces that Women’s Cooperative Association for Food Processing in Wadi Al-Taym has successfully completed a project for the installation of an electric generator, and started to use it.
The project, funded by the Government of Japan through its “Grant Assistance for Grass-roots Human Security Project (GGP)”, aims at alleviating the electricity shortage problem. The Embassy and the Association have signed the grant contract of US$10,920 on 8 November, 2005 for this aim.
Japan’s GGP supports development projects at grass-roots level proposed by such bodies as nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and local governmental authorities in Lebanon. Japan has so far extended through GGP more than US$ 9 million since 1996.
