Pupils from the nine basic schools of Juba have appreciated Japan for the clean drinking water project.
They expressed their gratitude when National Women Empowerment and Rehabilitation Organization was signing a contract of the water project, Radio Bakhita reports.
Sarah Abeja, Organization Program Coordinator says the project will basically boost girls’ enrollment in schools.
Japanese ambassador to South Sudan Kiya Masahiko says the 100 thousand US Dollars project is expected to be completed within six months.
He says the water project is meant to manage the pending Japan International Cooperation Agency or JICA project that will resume soon.
In July last year, JICA closed the national water project after the fighting erupted in Juba.
