AKIPRESS.COM - Ambassador of Japan to Mongolia Igawahara Masaru and Governor of Govi-Altai province O. Amgalanbaatar signed Mongolia's 603rd grant-aid agreement under the Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects of the government of Japan on March 15, Montsame reports.

This is the 20th project implemented under the Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Project in Govi-Altai province. It will build a one-stop service center in Yesunbulag district to combat domestic violence. With a fund of $203,000, this project aims to address the limitations of the current center's capacity to effectively serve those in need. The new building will provide a safe and private space for domestic violence victims.

Governor O. Amgalanbaatar expressed gratitude on behalf of the people of Govi-Altai province towards the government and people of Japan for their assistance in Mongolia's challenges, such as dzud, domestic violence, child protection, and support for children displaced from their homes. Additionally, the Governor noted that once the new facility is operational, the results of the project will be reported periodically.
