SHARANA (Pajhwok): Local officials on Sunday laid the foundation stone of a school building for girls, the first ever, in Ahmadabad area of Argun district of southeastern Paktika province.

Governor Mohammad Ilyas Wehdat and other local officials and a large number of residents attended the ground-breaking ceremony for the girls school at a special ceremony.

The governor said construction of school buildings, particularly of girls schools, was his priority and he was trying to resolve problems in this regard.

Wehdat said schools without buildings and a lack of female teachers were major challenges to the educationinfo-icon process in Paktika.

In order to resolve these issues, the governor said he had requested help from the ministry concerned and aid-giving organizations and hoped to get the required assistance.

Paktika education director Nasim Wahid said the school building in Ahmadabad area would be completed in 10 months. He said the building would have 10 rooms and would cost 18 million afghanis in total.

He said the building would resolve many problems currently being faced by the school girls.

Abdul Jalil, a resident of Ahmadabad area, told Pajhwok Afghan News all residents of the village were thankful to the government over construction of the school building.

Another resident, Mohammad Zaman, said Argun was the most populated and relatively peaceful town of Paktika. He said the government should pay more attention to the district particularly to the healthinfo-icon sector.
