In a gesture of international cooperation, the Government of Japan has gifted a brand-new classroom building to Shree Himalaya Secondary School (SHSS). The handover ceremony took place on February 28th, with Tamura Takahiro, Charge d’Affaires ad interim of Japan to Nepal, in attendance.

The project received funding of USD 185,971 (approximately NPR 23.2 million) through Japan’s Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGP). Mr. Takahiro expressed his congratulations and appreciation for those involved, emphasizing the project’s importance in enhancing the educational environment for SHSS students and teachers.

The project was implemented by the NPO Nepal Volunteer Social Service, an organization founded in 2009 by an SHSS graduate dedicated to improving education, agriculture, and health in the Sankhuwasabha District.

Established in 1960, SHSS serves approximately 400 students and plays a crucial role in providing education to the region. The previous school building posed safety concerns due to its age and deterioration. The new two-story structure boasts 11 modern classrooms and well-equipped restrooms.

The Embassy of Japan expressed hope that this new building will serve as a symbol of the enduring friendship between Japan and Nepal.
