India signs 5 MOUs for edu projects
KABUL (Tolo News): Afghan and Indian officials signed five memoranda of understanding (MOUs) at a ceremony in Kabul for the development of educational infrastructure in four Afghan provinces namely Nuristan, Farah, Badakhshan and Kapisa.
The MOUs, worth $2.6 million, will go towards the $200 million pledge by the Indian government made in 2005. “One of the reasons for the start of the fourth phase was the closure of the first and second phase. These phases were awaiting the new government and now the new government has started its work,” said Mustafa , the minister of economy.
The High Impact Community Development Projects started 15 years ago, and, so far, 587 projects have been implemented in different provinces. The projects signed include the construction of classrooms, the construction of a higher education building and the construction of a road within the Alberoni University compound in Parwan province, according to a statement by India’s embassy in Kabul.
