The Government of Japan has donated US$4 million via the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), to support free primary education and to promote primary health care in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The Government is providing fund under the Government of Japan's Grant Aid scheme for community empowerment, which will provide primary education to some 6,650 pupils. The fund will also ensure that Congolese students benefit from child-friendly and girl-friendly schools that possess essential school equipment, school supplies, safe water and latrines. The grant will also fund the opening of seven new community day care centres that are expected to be in service to some 500 children aged between three and five, along with eight health centres to provide quality care to Congolese women and children.
