British Forces News: British forces set up Afghan school despite Taliban threats

August 23, 2011

British forces in Afghanistan have helped to set up a school near Patrol Base One – an area that was under constant attack and littered with IEDs a year ago. It’s run by the Military Stabilisation Support Team, with two interpreters leading the lessons. They are taught Pashtu and Dari, Maths, English, Science, Art and Islamic studies. The school still needs to be given government approval – then it can apply for funding. In the meantime, the Military Stabilisation Support Team is looking to build a more permanent building for winter.

    A positive notice, that open the hope on the future of Afghan people, of the Afghan childs.
    I am sure that, by a continue action of patrol and a mantained situation of stability, the progress will be a natural event and have positive results.
    Thanks Claudio Alpaca
