KUNDUZ CITY (Pajhwok): Forty schools that were destroyed during recent clashes in northern Kunduz province have been rehabilitated and put into service, officials said on Monday.

Mohammad Rustam Ahmadi, acting education director, told a news conference here that tables, chairs and walls of 40 schools which were earlier damaged had been repaired and the schools prepared for operating.

He said the rehabilitation works cost 40.3 million afghanis provided by the Ministry of Education and the Aga Khan Foundation.

“The schools repaired are both for girls and boys. The structures were destroyed in clashes during the past one and a half years. They are now fully rehabilitated and ready for usage.” He asked security forces not to allow insurgents again destroy schools and deprive children of education.

Governor Asadullah Amarkhel, who was present at the press conference, said his administration gave more importance to education and efforts were in place to avoid destruction of schools again by insurgents.

He expressed happiness over reconstruction of the damaged schools, saying it was pleasing that children had resumed going to school.
