Governor Abdul Basir Salangi

Afghan education officials, Parwan’s provincial governor Abdul Basir Salangi, students, and teachers, attended an inauguration ceremony for a newly constructed 2-story school building, according to a Ministry of Education press release today. 

The building is for the Ghulam Ali Girl’s Middle School in Bagram district, which is located in central Parwan province. The $207,000 of funding for the project was provided by the United States Provincial Reconstruction Team. The land the school was built on was donated by the local people.

The building which took 9 months to complete has 16 classrooms, 8 administrative rooms, 10 privies, a room for guards, and a drinking water well. The school was also provided with tables and chairs – both for the classrooms and for the administrative rooms. The new building resolves space issues for 478 students currently studying in the school.
