KABUL (PAN): Construction work on a building for an institute of technical and vocational studies has been launched in the Pul-i-Charkhi area of central Kabul province.
The project is expected to be complete 14 months, a cabinet minister on Tuesday.
The three-storey building would have 30 classrooms, a 60-room hostel and 11 administrative rooms, which would also be used for cultural activities, the education minister Ghulam Farooq Wardak said at the foundation stone- laying ceremony.
Students at the institute would be taught in the areas of industry, buildings, road construction, cadastral survey, construction of dams and drains, water supply, architecture, construction tunnel, cartography and geodesy, Wardak said.
The building would facilitate about 1,000 students and the dormitory building would accommodate about 300 students, he said.
The building, which is expected to cost $500,000 (23.5 million afghanis) provided by the Ministry of Education, would be constructed by an Afghan construction company, the minister said.
Currently there are about 142 vocational institutes across the country and the number of which will increase to 500 in next ten years.
