The Japanese Embassy in Ghana has approved a grant of GH¢ 234,509.75 for improvement and for equipment acquisition for the Pagzaa community centre in the Northern Region.

The Embassy had signed a grant contract with Africa 2000 Network Ghana, the beneficiary non-governmental organization, towards the implementation of the Project on Tuesday in Accra.

Mr. Shigeru Hamano, Deputy Chief of Missions who signed for the Japanese Government, said the project which formed part of the Japan’s Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGHSP) scheme established in 1989 was aimed at revitalizing economic activities in Pagzaa community.

“GGHSP supports non-governmental organisations and communities to carry out their self-help projects to promote economic and social development activities,” he said.

The GGHSP scheme is small scale assistance from the people of Japan to communities in Ghana which aims at directly assisting grassroots level development projects.

The scheme mainly targets projects that would be highly beneficial at the grass-root level and those that required timely support on humanitarian grounds.

Eligible recipients include NGOs and local public authorities and individuals.

Projects which qualify to be funded under the scheme include construction of school blocks, health centers, dormitories and improvement of fundamentally needed equipment.

“The Renovations according to the contract will include the renovation of the boiling area, renovation of the working hills, renovation of the mill house, provision of a water tank and the electrification of the centre,” he said

Madam Adisa Yakubu, Executive Director, Africa 2000 Network Ghana, said she was was optimistic that the project would provide a decent workplace for economic activities that would increase income for women in the community to enable them contribute meaningful to their families and communities.

“This is Africa 2000 Network Ghana second time of receiving this grant. In 2008 the Embassy co-funded the Sagnarigu and Walewale women’s centers in the Northern Region with United Nations Development Programme UNDP and the UNDPJapan Women in Development Fund with an amount of 73,113.35 US dollars.” she added.
