NAIROBI, (CAJ News) – JAPAN has provided more than US$100 000 (Kshs 9.1 million) for the rehabilitation of the Kalimani Earth Dam in Kenya.

The funds will be used for construction of water withdrawal systems,fencing and seedling plants to improve the access to clean water.

Kalimani Earth Dam was built in the 1980s through manual labor, but the dam silted up and unfortunately breached in 2005.

The project in Matinyani District, Kitui County is expected to be completed by the end of September.

The Grant Contract of the project had previously been signed at the Embassy of Japan in Nairobi last September by Tatsushi Terada, the Ambassador of Japan to Kenya and Edith Martha Mulwa, representative of the grantee organization, Initiative for Green Kenya.
