MAIMANA (PANinfo-icon):  More than 1,000 families would benefit from nine welfare projects, which were executed under the National Solidarity Programme (NSP) in northern Faryab province, officials said on Sunday.

Funded by the Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development (MRRD), the projects, Cost 9,330,000 afghanis ($94375), would assist the residents of Andkhoy district, Rural Rehabilitation and Development Director Mauladad Pupal told Pajhwok Afghan News.

The projects included the construction of a 7-kilometre road, extension of 5,800 metres power line and installation of eight transformers, he said.

Since their area had low-voltage electricity, they preferred projects of transformer installations, local resident Ahmad Zia said.

The roads were very muddy during the winter, but with graveling of the road, their problem would be resolved, said another resident of the district, Chari Qul.

Meanwhile, two more construction projects were completed in Khan Charbagh and Qarghan districts. Funded by the Disbandment of Illegal Armed Groups (DIAG) and the Ministry of Educationinfo-icon, a school building and a community centre were constructed.

The DIAG funded community centre, cost id="mce_marker"60,000, was built on 1.5 acres of land, Popal said, adding a school building was constructed at a cost of 4.4 million afs ($91666.6) provided by the education ministry.

Around 560 girls and boys study at the secondary school in two shifts, headmaster Qurban Nazar said.
