Completion Ceremony for School Facilities Construction

080918_low   It has now been eleven months  since the remote operation management from Pakistan was introduced.

  Last month the completion ceremony for school facilities construction was conducted in two schools. There were numerous people gathered for the ceremony, such as members of the school management board, school teachers, pupils, and local leaders.

  A speech kicked off the ceremony by a member of Parliament who is originally from where the school was built, followed by the student representatives and then the Embassy of Japan that financially supported the school construction. Female students made the ceremony special  by delivering wonderful songs with eye-catching pastel colors on their burkas.

  What continues to surprise us  on occasions like this ceremony, is how powerfully the Afghans deliver their speeches. . They passionately emphasised the importance of education, and gracefully  described how much they appreciate the contributions from Japan.
