Japan has announced a collaborative effort with the Future Girls Association for Society Development to enhance clean water access in Al Ayyat, Giza, through a new grant initiative. The project, supported by a $60,000 grant from the Embassy of Japan, aims to install water purification stations and facilitate water delivery in the area, marking the first partnership between the two entities.

During the signing ceremony, Ambassador Hiroshi Oka of Japan expressed enthusiasm for the project's potential to improve the lives of Al Ayyat residents, aligning with the 30th anniversary of Japan's Grassroots Human Security Projects (KUSANONE) in Egypt. The initiative underscores Japan's commitment to supporting local communities through direct and small-scale financial aid to NGOs and non-profit organizations.

Dr. Zeinab Mekky from the Future Girls Association expressed gratitude for Japan's support and highlighted the project's anticipated impact on the health and overall living conditions of the local population. She also expressed hope for future collaborations spurred by this project.

Since 1994, Japan has contributed over $10 million to support 178 projects across Egypt, covering a broad spectrum of sectors including education, health, and water sanitation. The Embassy of Japan in Egypt continues to welcome project applications from NGOs, furthering its dedication to grassroots development and community empowerment.
