JICA volunteer section program officer , Sarojini Lal said the volunteers were expected to arrive in June and be based in the education sector.

“Another three volunteers are expected to arrive in September  and  will be based  in the  physical therapy, nutrition and primary education sectors,” Ms Lal said.
