Japan’s unwavering commitment toward supporting Lebanon’s education sector continues after a solar power system was handed over to the Yeghishe Manoukian College (YMC), located in Dbayeh, Metn, Mount Lebanon.
The solar power system, which will provide affordable and green energy, comes as a blessing for students of YMC who have faced operational challenges due to the financial and fuel crisis in Lebanon.
The move, supported through Japan’s Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Program (GGP), will help increase the number of students and restore extracurricular class hours, providing a more conducive learning environment for the students at YMC.
During the ceremony Ambassador MAGOSHI Masayuki highlighted Japan’s recent support for solar power projects across Lebanon in various sectors and emphasized the importance of this initiative.
He also reiterated Japan’s unwavering commitment to supporting Lebanon’s education sector to help Lebanon overcome the ongoing socio-economic challenges.
In return, Hovig Arslanian, Member of the Board of YMC, expressed his gratitude to Japan’s generous support and highlighted the profound impact of this initiative, which creates a carbon-free and pollution-free learning environment for students.
He also praised the collaboration efforts with Japan, mentioning that the provided solar power system is a symbol of resilience, sustainability, and a shared commitment to providing quality education in adverse conditions.
