GHAZNI CITY (PANinfo-icon): A computer and English language course, a US embassy funded project, was on Thursday launched for girls in southern Ghazni province, an official said.

About 150 girls have been registered to participate in the course, said provincial womeninfo-icon's affairs director, Shukria Wali.

She said the attendees had been divided into two shifts so all girls could attend and that the course was being taught free.

A representative of the US embassy at the provincial reconstructioninfo-icon team (PRTinfo-icon) said such courses were completed last year and had been beneficial. The US wanted to continue the process for girls in the province.

A participant, Shakiba, said girls had a keen interest in learning English and computer skills.
