Panjwai District Leaders Host Agricultural Training and Outreach for Farmers

kandahar jpgBelambai villagers received agricultural training from the District Agricultural, Irrigation, and Livestock (DAIL) program in Panjwai district, Kandahar province, Feb. 18.

DAIL representative Mohammed Wali and a Belambai school teacher Azad Khan taught 60 villagers fertilization, seeding and soil techniques.

The DAIL’s first visit to Belambai village demonstrates the Afghan government’s commitment to help improve the district’s economy.

“Today was a good time to come here and give the farmers everything the department has to offer them. I am available to attend and facilitate future training events throughout Panjwai district,” said Mohammed Wali. “This is just the beginning. In the future, we have more to offer farmers throughout Panjwai, not just Belambai. The people of Belambai often try to go to the Americans for help; this needs to stop. The Government of Afghanistan is here for the people and we are here to help them.”

Malik Ahmed Shah handed out approximately 50 Afghan flags to villagers because of the improvement in security, development and governance efforts in Panjwai district.

“The people of Belambai and Alikozai are proud of the new progress made in their surrounding villages. The progress made in Zangabad is a result of the villagers standing up for and taking charge of their villages,” said Malik Ahmed Shah. “These flags symbolize the patriotism of villagers and their support of our government. Our people’s patriotism shows unity against the Taliban.”

Malik Ahmed Shah and Mohammed Wali distributed 5,000 Afghanis and vouchers to each farmer to purchase farming seed, fertilizer and other agriculture products from local vendors at the conclusion of the training event.
