2024 Feb 29, 12:14,

The handover ceremony of the classroom building supported

by the Government of Japan to Shree Himalaya Secondary School (SHSS) in Makalu

Rural Municipality, Sankhuwasabha District. The new building

was constructed with assistance of USD 185,971 (approximately NPR 23.2 million) under

the Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGP).

 TAMURA Takahiro, Charge d'Affaires ad interim of Japan to Nepal, attended

the ceremony, and he congratulated and expressed his appreciation for the efforts of all

those involved in the project. He also emphasized that the result of the project will

significantly improve the learning environment for both the students and teachers of the


SHSS was founded in 1960, and with an enrollment of approximately 400

students, has been a vital educational institution in the area and beyond. Prior to the

project, the nearly-40-years-old main building was not only outmoded and dark, but also

had safety concerns, with cracks in the walls and leaks from the roof. The new building

is a two-story structure with 11 classrooms and well-equipped toilets for girls and boys.

The Embassy hopes that it will be a long-lasting symbol of the friendship from the people

of Japan.

This project was implemented by NPO Nepal Volunteer Social Service through

GGP of the Government of Japan. The organization was established by a graduate of

SHSS in 2009 and has been actively working to improve education, agriculture, and

health in Sankhuwasabha District.

GGP was established to implement projects that directly benefit people at the

grassroots level for the socio-economic development of communities. Since 1991, over

200 GGP projects have been implemented in Nepal.
