Japan to fund 2 projects in Nangarhar's Khewa & Surkhrod districts
KABUL (Pajhwok):The Embassy of Japan has signed grant contracts with two NGOs for new development projects worth $173,236 in eastern Nangarhar province.
Under Japan’s Grant Assistance for Grassroots Projects (GAGP), the two schemes would be implemented in Khewa and Surkhrod districts.
As many as 500 date plants would be over five acres of land in the Gamberi Desert, where the Peace (Japan) Medical Service (PMS) will be implementing the project.
This project will be the first private dates farm in Nangarhar province and will also provide knowledge for the local farmers in future to build up their own farms.
The second project involves the construction of orphanage in Surkhrod, providing a safe stay for the 80 orphaned boys and girls and promoting the level of education for them.
