Computer, internet centre opens in Zazi Maidan
KHOST CITY (Pajhwok): Funded by a public representative, a newly-established computer and internet centre and a public library were inaugurated in the Zazi Maidan district of southeastern Khost province on Wednesday.
Aimed at enabling schoolteachers, students and the youth to have access to computer and the internet, the two facilities cost more than 200 million afghanis which had been provided by a member of the provincial council, Abdul Wali Wahidzai.
Wahidzai told Pajhwok Afghan News the computer and internet centre was a training facility in which the youth in the remote district would learn contemporary knowledge.
“The library has more than 400 books and the computer centre has 10 computers with internet facility. I hope the youth would benefit from the facility,” he said.
A student, Shakirullah, told Pajhwok Afghan News the computer and internet centre would resolve problems students faced in their studies.
“The library can assist us in our studies. Through the internet we can learn about subjects which are not included in our textbooks,” he said.
A high school student, Syed Rassoul, said the training centre would help the youth enhance their knowledge. “We have learned about computers through visual learning, but now we will practically learn about the computer.”
