New school building and police logistics center to built in Afghanistan

Afghanistan’s Ministry of Education announced today that a foundation stone laying ceremony has been held for a new school building that will be built for the Haidar Khani High School in Afghanistan’s eastern province of Laghman. Afghan officials, students and teachers attended the ceremony, according to the announcement. Funding for the project will come from a Danish agency. The project is expected to be completed in 8 months, and the building will have 8 classrooms, 4 administrative rooms, and 5 restrooms.

Meanwhile, in neighboring Nangarhar province, Pajhwok Afghan News (PAN) reported today that the foundation stone for a police logistics center has been laid. The center will be built at a cost of $20 million on 30 acres of land, an official told PAN. Funding for the project is being provided by the United States. Per the report, the center will have 50 buildings, and they will “facilitate logistic supplies to Afghan National Police (ANA) and Afghan Border Police (ABP) in Nangarhar, Laghman, Kunar and Nuristan provinces”. The project is part of an overall greater project to hand off security responsibilities to the Afghans themselves.
