Japan assists Nature Sans Frontiers
(15 October 2009)
The Embassy of Japan announces that Nature Sans Frontiers in Saoufar has successfully completed a project for the enlargement of water channels, and started to use them.
The project, funded by the Government of Japan through its “Grant Assistance for Grass-roots Human Security Project (GGP)”, aims at improvement of the water supplies in a remote area. The Embassy and the Association have signed the grant contract of US$66,068 on 27 November, 2002 for this aim.
Japan’s GGP supports development projects at grass-roots level proposed by such bodies as nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and local governmental authorities in Lebanon. Japan has so far extended through GGP more than US$ 9 million since 1996.
