    Kunduz school buildings inaugurated

    KUNDUZ CITY (PAN): Two newly-constructed school buildings were inaugurated in northern Kunduz province on Wednesday, an official said.

    The German-funded buildings for Ahmad Shah Baba and Arzebgi Schools cost $373,000, said Education Director Mohammad Zahir Nazam.

    With the new buildings, the space problem of 1300 students, who were previously taught under the open sky, would be resolved, he said.

    Nazam said the new buildings, each constructed on half an acre of land donated by local people, had classrooms, administrative rooms, toilets, drinking water wells and boundary walls.

    Officials said more than 207,000 girls and boys were enrolled at 400 schools across the province. Forty percent of the schools are without proper buildings.
