Paktia youth writes textbooks on physical health

Nov 25, 2018 - 17:35

GARDEZ (Pajhwok): A young man in southeastern Paktia province has written books about physical healthinfo-icon, educationinfo-icon, and sportsinfo-icon for high school students and wants his work to be made part of the educational curriculum.

The youth, Abdul Aziz Pakteen, says he has compiled important topics related to physical fitness, training, and sports for class ninth, tenth, 11th and 12th curriculum books.

Pakteen, who recently repatriated from Pakistaninfo-icon, can speak in Pashtoinfo-icon, Dari, English, and other languages.

During an exclusive interview with Pajhwok Afghan News, Pakteen said he got inspiration from physical training and related materials in Pakistani curriculum books and on the internet and matched them with international standard organizations for ensuring updated version and quality of the subjects.

He said: “While writing books, I check other internationally recognized textbooks which are reliable and have academic standards, then I share them with international organizations and institutes before including them in my work.”

Pakteen, who sells socks on a handcart in Gardez City, the provincial capital, said private publications had offered him tens of thousands of afghanis for selling his work, but he wanted all Afghans to benefit from his hard work.

He asked the Ministry of Education and related national and international organizations to publish his books with high quality and include them in the curriculum.

“After completing these books, I showed to two publishers who offered money but I told them I want the entire country to benefit from my work. I want the MoE to take the initiative and publish my work in the educational curriculum,” he said.

He said he had compiled his books keeping in mind the level of students’ intellect and their ability of learning.

MoE spokesman Kabir Haqmal hailed the work of Pakteen as a huge effort for the future of Afghan children. He said the education ministry would evaluate his books and if needed would print them.

He, however, said the current number of curriculum books was already too much and they were unable to include more books in the syllabi.
