Samangan schools receive equipment

Feb 22, 2011 - 16:43

AIBAK (PANinfo-icon): Forty schools were provided books, stationery, furniture and laboratory equipment in northern Samangan province on Tuesday, an educationinfo-icon official said.

The equipment was distributed to schools in all six districts and the provincial capital, Mohammad Omar Stanikzai told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Costing about 4.2 million afghanis ($93,674), the items, including computers, were delivered with the financial support of the Worldinfo-icon Bank and the Ministry of Education, he said.

Ajani Mulki High School Principal Jamila acknowledged receiving 203 laboratory tools, 50 chairs, 143 textbooks and eight cupboards. About 3,600 students are studying at this school in Aibak, the provincial capital.

A 12th grade student at the same school, Zuhra, said they were previously taught science subjects without access to experiments. With the new laboratory equipment, students would be able to gain more knowledge about the subjects, she said.

According to Stanikzai, Samangan has 244 schools, where 80,000 students are enrolled. Twenty-two of the newly-established schools have not been equipped so far. The new schools cost 20 million afghanis, provided by the World Bank.
