Kabul: Thousands of children were provided with schooling facilities in the province of Logar, the provincial educational department said.
Many children in the rural areas of the province are deprived of education. “We have 400 classrooms and we have appointed 400 teachers in all provinces of Logar,” said Mawlawi Janat Gul Aziz, head of the provincial department of education.
The classes are being supported by UNICEF in cooperation with IRC. “The period of the classes taught in the villages is nine months each year and the period of quick classes is six months (twice each year),” said Mohammad Alam Ghalib, head of Wadan organization.
Meanwhile, the students are happy about their classes but called for further facilities in the education area.
The classes are being taught on the local level until grade three.
“Our teacher teaches Islamic lessons. He teaches us Pashto and math,” said Marriam a student. “I was not interested in the school. When the school began here, I became happy and thanked them,” said Noorzia, a student.
The residents of Logar said that many children are deprived of schooling due to lack of access and urged the current Afghan government to consider their problems.
