Vocational School Opens in Kabul, Major Infrastructure Projects Inaugurated in Kunduz

The Afghanistan Technical Vocational Institute (ATVI), built and administered by Knowlogy International, has opened its doors to 600 new students from Kabul and other urban and rural regions in Afghanistan. The Institute is the first post-war vocational school designed to educate both men and women in skills critical to the future of Afghanistan. The school expects to eventually graduate 5,000 students per year.

ATVI was developed in response to the Afghan Ministry of Education's desire to address Afghanistan's critical skill shortfall in construction, horticulture, automotive mechanics, and information technology.

The concept of ATVI was developed by A. Huda Farouki, Chairman of Knowlogy International, and Ishaq Shahryar, former Afghan Ambassador to the United States and now Chairman of ATVI. The Institute is led by its Director, former Afghan Ambassador to Pakistan and Afghan Minister of Education, Sardar Mohammed Roshan.

On May 6 Northern Director of the Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development (MRRD) Engineer Ahmad Niaro inaugurated a dozen bridges that will facilitate the transportation of goods throughout Kunduz province. The project, implemented under the National Solidarity Program, will link small villages with the district center.

Over 19,900 development projects have been completed in 17,200 villages across the country since 2003. More than 14 million people are beneficiaries of these projects.
