AMMAN — The Japanese government has decided to extend a $316,158 grant as support to a youth project to be implemented by the Japanese NGO KnK (Children without Borders), in cooperation with the Higher Council for Youth (HCY).
KnK started the implementation of the project in 2010 and has so far completed two phases, according to a Japanese embassy statement.
Japanese Ambassador Junichi Kosuge and KnK Project Coordinator Koko Kato signed the grant contract on Tuesday.
The project seeks to provide trainees with actual experience in running daily operations of youth centres.
The Japanese embassy will support an education project carried out by Kokkyo naki Kodomotachi (KnK) Japan under an agreement signed on Thursday.
Japanese Ambassador to Jordan Junichi Kosuge said his country is committed to further strengthening its longstanding ties with the Kingdom.
Japan extended $14 million to Jordan on Sunday as a budget support under the nonproject grant aid scheme.
