Japan helped more than 140 children from the Pachacutec area in Ventanilla by financing educational projects, involving improvements in the infrastructure of their educational centers.
“According to the teachers, the students did not enjoy a good atmosphere for their classes. However, now they study in a modern building, where each classroom has a television, multimedia equipment and can play on a synthetic grass court”, Perú 21 explained.
In gratitude, the school children of the COPRODELI Santa María school (one of the benefited educational centers) held a ceremony and invited the second secretary of the Department of Economic Cooperation of the Embassy of Japan in Peru, Motohiko Iwase, who said that it is one of the many social projects that they have been promoting in the country.
“I believe that education is fundamental and important for the children of the people of Peru. We have already donated many educational projects and we must continue working with the head of NGOs, such as the municipality and regional government”, said Motohiko Iwase to the media.
