Construction Project Completion

This week the Gul Pacha Ulfat girl's school wall was completed. The project was nominated through the Laghman Ministry of Education as part of an effort by the MOE to bring Laghman's schools up to their latest standards. The project was completed by a local construction company that specializes in these types of small scale projects and employed approximately 50 local workers. School officials in Laghman are hoping the project will increase enrollment for girls as the project adds security and privacy to the school. The current student population is approximately 300. Several of these types of projects are ongoing or have been completed in the province. The project was coordinated and managed through the TF Wildhorse civil military operations center.
