New projects are to be developed in the Laghman province with a capital injection of $1.7 million. This will surely create job opportunities for those living in the area, which is always a source of delight for those active in Afghan improvements, such as Hamed Wardak, founder of the Campaign for a US-Afghanistan Partnership (CUSAP). One of the main goals of the CUSAP is to “achieve sustainable security and prosperity in Afghanistan.” The scope of this latest project in Laghman includes building bridges (to improve transportation and facilitate security measures throughout the land) as well as canals.
The projects are being financed by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the United Nations Children’s Fund, the World Bank, and the Provincial Reconstruction Team (PRT). The other main aim of the CUSAP is achieving a partnership between America and Afghanistan, being a “nonprofit organization of American and Afghan citizens.”
