UNICEF funds building of 75 schools in central Afghanistan

 

A friend and partner of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), is providing funds for 75 schools in central Afghanistan.

A delegation of the UNICEF joined the Education Minister Dr. Farooq Wardak on Saturday to lay the foundation of the schools.

Estimated to cost USD 25mn, the projects are to be implemented in Bamyan, Ghor and Daikundi .

Education facilities in the central provinces have not been up to mark compared to other provinces.

The implementation of the schools is a step towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

MDGs are eight international development goals that all 193 United Nations member states and at least 23 international organizations have agreed to achieve by the year 2015. The goals are:

  1. eradicating extreme poverty and hunger,
  2. achieving universal primary education,
  3. promoting gender equality and empowering women
  4. reducing child mortality rates,
  5. improving maternal health,
  6. combating HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other diseases,
  7. ensuring environmental sustainability, and
  8. developing a global partnership for development.
