JALALABAD (PANinfo-icon): A new building for the Abdul Wakeel High School was inaugurated on Thursday in Jalalabad, the capital of eastern Nangarhar province, officials said.

The double-storey building, having 30 classrooms and two administrative rooms, was constructed at a cost of $200,000, provided by the German Aid for Afghan Children (GAAC).

A spokesman for the educationinfo-icon department, Mohammad Hashim Shinwari, told Pajhwok Afghan News the building, completed in one year, would house 5,000 students.

GAAC Director Dr. Med. Reinhard und Annette Erös said Germany was assisting Afghanistaninfo-icon in the education sector. They had already constructed school buildings for Bibi Hawa and Bibi Maryam girls’ high schools.

Work on the Naheed Shaheed girls’ high school and Laghman University was underway, he said. Of the 780 schools in the province, 350 are without proper buildings.
