Building for girls’ school inaugurated in Kunar, eastern Afghanistan

Funded by Indian government, a newly-constructed building for girls’ high school was inaugurated in the eastern Province of Kunar.

Costing 8mn AFN, the building has a capacity of 900 students, with 10 classrooms and four administrative rooms, said Education Director Syed Jamaluddin Hussaini.

There are 470 schools in the province, but more than half of them do not have proper buildings.

A total of 178,000 students, including 60,000, girls are enrolled in schools across the province.

India and Afghanistan’s bilateral relations have been traditionally strong and friendly. India established diplomatic relations with the newly-established democratic government of Afghanistan after the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan in 2001. India has provided US$ 650–750 million in humanitarian and economic aid, making it the largest regional provider of aid for Afghanistan. India’s support and collaboration extends to rebuilding of air links, power plants and investing in health and education sectors as well as helping to train Afghan civil servants, diplomats and police. India also seeks the development of supply lines of electricity, oil and natural gas, and to give Afghan Students scholarships.
