It is always good to hear about improvements taking place in Afghanistan. Any time an investment is made in the region, it is good for the citizens. Hamed Wardak is an Afghan-American who works hard for the people of Afghanistan, along these lines. So it was great to hear about the recent building of a $192,500 16 room girls’ school in the Nangarhar province. Fortunately, this is just one in quite a long line of schools that have been constructed in Afghanistan. Indeed, figures show that today, more Afghan children are attending schools than ever before in the country’s history. As well, education ministry officials have committed to continuing this trend so that the country continues to thrive educationally. There will be a special focus on building in the poorer provinces.
