An old Afghan man donated his private land to the Education Ministry, demanding to build a girl’s school on it in the Gosfandi district of northern Sar-e-Pul province, Ministry of Education said.

Faizullah and elder of Gosfandi district donated 2,000 sqm land valuing AFN 4 mn to the Ministry of Education for building a girl’s school.

The Education Ministry has committed to building a girl’s school on the land donated by Faizullah which will enable the female students in the area to access education.

Government officials have praised Faizullah for his generous act honoring him with an appreciation letter.

This comes as despite raising billions of international aids to Afghanistan since 2001, a considerable number of residents do not have access to proper infrastructural facilities health and education.
