Japanese government has provided grant assistance of nearly US$400,000 to Cambodia, under its Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (KUSANONE Grant).

The grant contracts were signed between Japanese Ambassador to Cambodia  Mikami Masahiro and representatives of the recipient organisations.

The grant assistance is for constructing clean water distribution systems in a village in Pursat province and school buildings in the provinces of Rattanakiri, Mondulkiri, and Kratie.

Initiated in Cambodia in 1991, KUSANONE Grant is aimed to assist vulnerable people from a range of natural causes, such as poverty and misfortune, which directly threaten their livelihoods and dignity, as well as promote their self-ownership of the community.

Since 1991, through KUSANONE Grant, Japan has provided more than US$60 million to local authorities and non-governmental organisations to implement 624 projects in the areas of infrastructure, education, health and agriculture throughout Cambodia. Chea Vannak/AKP
