The foundation stone for a mega poultry farm was laid yesterday in the Kama district of Afghanistan’s eastern province of Nangarhar, according to a Pajhwok Afghan News report. Senior officials told the news agency that it will employ over 1000 Afghan men and women, and that the project is expected to take three and half years to complete. Mohammad Asif Rahimi, Afghanistan’s Agriculture Minister, said in a news conference that the project will boost the local economy, and serve as a good alternative to poppy cultivation in the province.
Last week, Afghanistan’s Bakhtar News Agency reported that a new building for a middle school in the Doulatabad district of Faryab province was inaugurated. According to Afghan education ministry officials, the new building took one year to build, and it has seven classrooms, 4 administrative rooms, as well as other educational facilities.
