We invited 5 students and 1 leader from a vocational training school in East Timor with the assistance of the Sakura Science Program in the Japan Science and Technology Agency. They studied our efforts to protect water and environment for 6 days.
Ono city has been providing water supply facilities since 2017.
It’s necessary not only to support but also to improve consciousness to save the watershed because of the decreasing amount of groundwater and pollution in Dill, the capital of East Timor.
This program should be a good opportunity for the students who will work to raise awareness about water.
They visited Ono city on March 8th, and took part in an inspection tour until 13th.
