Girls attend school for the first time in 30 years

Friday, May 23, 2008

KABUL, Afghanistan – One hundred forty girls in the Shajoy district of Zabul province attended school Saturday, a first for females there in 30 years.

The girls are currently studying lessons such as religion and math in a small mud house, however they are in need of a suitable location in the district for a school.



“I hope all these girls will have a good future,” said Mr. Qayoum, district administrator. “I’m happy the girls can come to school and be in this good situation. I and the police chief are always here to work with the people of Shajoy.

“In the name of God, honorable teachers and honorable students, today I am pleased I’m seeing children in school,” said the deputy governor. “I couldn’t believe you have students in a safe and secure area; I would appreciate all forces’ cooperation for security. For everyone in Shajoy, farmers, teachers and each individual, I’m asking you to send your children to school. It’s our obligation. You (the children) are the future of Afghanistan.”
