Afghanistan: School completion in Palij village

Posted on 25 Nov, 2014 by GFA

Suitable learning conditions are a basic requirement for education, one of the fundamental human rights. For most Afghan parents educational attainment is highly valued for their children to find good jobs and improve their livelihood. But in war-torn Afghanistan, many children in remote areas have no chance to go to school at all. In many villages schools are in a very poor state of repair. The school project is located about 400 kilometers west of Kabul, the home town of the office manager of a GFA TVET project in Kabul. He is committed to improve the learning environment of about 2000 children in Palij village.

The project is supported with a total amount of 4,490 euros and includes completing the school building and roof, plastering the walls, and comissioning and installing doors and windows. Construction work started in October 2014 and will be completed in January 2015.

This project is undertaken by Ghulam Hossain Parwiz, GFA office manager in Kabul TVET project.
