He stated, “The students will benefit from better teaching conditions, thus, better capacitities will be developed in this community.”
The decision for the construction of the building was made by the Provincial Development Committee. The project was prioritized by the Department of Education who was supported in implementing this project by the Regional Capacity Development Fund (RCDF). Financing for the construction of the building came from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) with total costs of approx. AFN 24 million and with an additional co- payment of approx. AFN 1.7 million by the Department of Education as well as the local authorities for purchasing the school compound.
As part of the Afghan-German Cooperation, the RCDF is implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH. The RCDF provides supports for its Afghan partners’ development priorities both on a provincial and a district level in six of Afghanistan’s Northern provinces. At the same time, the RCDF provides training and coaching programmes for civil servants. With its broad range of activities, the RCDF aims to increase Afghan ownership of the development process, strengthen Afghan state institutions on the sub-national level and promote transparency and inclusiveness.
