Aid Watch (Japan)

Japan recently donated KR17m ($3m)to the Education Sector Pool Fund to improve education standards. Finance Minister Alexander Chikwanda and Japanese Charge D’ Affairs Interim, Hideki Yamaji signed the agreement at the Ministry of Finance. The funds would be utilised on among others, education materials and equipment in secondary and primary schools, education leadership, management training, infrastructure completion, rehabilitation of both primary and secondary schools countrywide and improvement of management information systems. This seems very little and a little baffling to see the fan fare. But I suppose beggars aren't choosers and every little helps! More detail via Times of Zambia.
