AIBAK/FAIZABAD (Pajhwok): Construction work on seven school buildings has been completed with financial support from the Swedish Committee for Afghanistaninfo-icon (SCA) in northern Samangan province.

While in northeastern Badakhshan province, construction work on a building for the information and culture department began on Thursday.

Eng. Mohammad Fahim Wahidi, rural development projects head at SCA in Samangan, said two school buildings were constructed in Baloch and Surkh Kotal villages of Dara-i-Suf Payeen and three buildings in Surkh Kotal, Alikhel and Hashtliz villages.
