THE Japanese Government has given assistance of about $903,000 to five organisations in Fiji.

The assistance is provided through Japan's Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects program.

The Commissioner Western's office will receive $153,230 for the instalment of early flood warning devices across 32 communities.

The equipment will be solar-powered and the communities will also receive training on how to use and maintain it.

The second project, the relocation of Nakoroboya Primary School, will receive $212,500 for the school's change of location to Nabutini.

The upgrading of Sigatoka Valley High School is the third project to receive assistance of $193,362.90 for the construction of an ablution block and a fully-furnished three-classroom block, with a built-in library.

A further $159,302 will be given for the provision of fire trucks to the National Fire Authority, while the final project is the upgrading of the sanitary environment in Levuka — the provision of $184,160 to the Levuka Town Council for the purchase of a garbage compactor truck and ride-on lawn mower to be used to beautify Fiji's only UNESCO World Heritage Site.
