The Japanese Ambassador Ryoichi Horie and the CES Minister of Physical Infrastructure Soba Samuel Manasseh signed the Grant contract in the state Governor’s office on Wednesday under the auspices of the Deputy Governor Manasseh Lomolo Waya and other officials.

The cash donation is for the rehabilitation of the 1.7 km Juba Na Bari Community Road.

This Project is expected to pave the road with side ditches to improve the drainage system in the area.

“Every year, during rainy season, Juba Na Bari community suffers from heavy rain and flood due to its geographical characteristics and lack of drainage system. This has been causing extensive damages to the roads and limiting the mobility of the people,” says a press statement from the Japanese Embassy.

The floods usually cut off access to the main roads, affecting not only school children but also adults going to markets and their work stations.

Water-borne diseases such as typhoid, diarrhea, and malaria are widely prevalent in the area especially during rainy season.

“All of the above are resulting in the deterioration of overall socio-economic productivity of the people living in the community,” said the release.  

According to the press release, the designing of the road and side ditches has been done through the Japanese International Cooperation Agency’s technical assistance and further consultation is underway with United Nations Mission in South Sudan.

The project is expected to benefit more than 3500 households in the community by improving the mobility of people and the living condition in general.

GGP is designed particularly to support the community-level socio-economic projects that address basic human needs such as access to health, water and sanitation, education, income generation skills, and other means to maximise opportunities for individuals.

This approach accordingly reflects Japan’s commitment to uphold the notion of ‘Human Security’ as basic human rights for all.

“All individuals, in particular vulnerable people, are entitled to freedom from fear and freedom from want, with an equal opportunity to enjoy all their rights and fully develop their human potential. By directly supporting the projects implemented by grassroots organizations, GGP encourages bottom-up efforts by the local communities, and realizes their empowerment,” said the statement.

The government of Japan has extended a grant assistance of US $ 1, 041,330 to the State Ministry of Physical Infrastructure of Central Equatoria State (CES) under the Grant Assistance for Grassroots and Human Security Projects (GGP).
