On February 5, 2019, a signing ceremony took place in Bermudian Landing, Belize District, for the construction of a building for Harmony Pre-school. Funded by the Japanese Government under its Grassroots Human Security Project at a cost of 108,353 US Dollars, it includes the construction of a classroom building and perimeter fence around the school yard in order to improve learning for children in the Belize River Valley Area. Harmony Pre-school is the only institution that offers Early Childhood Education in the Belize River Valley Area, but does not have its own building and is currently occupying the Bermudian Landing Community Center to accommodate classes.

Present for the ceremony yesterday was Minister of Transport and National Emergency Management, and Belize Rural North Area Representative, Hon. Edmond Castro; Japan’s Chargé D’affaires in Belize, Hiroyuki Kubota; General Manager for Government Primary Schools, Marvin Kellyman; Founder of Harmonyville Preschool and President of the Community Baboon Sanctuary, Jessie Young; and Principal of Harmony Pre-school, Paulette Martinez.

Execution of the project is expected to take less than a year.
