1,200 Chalk Boards for 185 Schools in Baghlan Province

The Afghan-German Cooperation handed over 1,200 new chalkboards to 185 schools in 15 districts of Baghlan province
More than 80,000 students will now benefit from classrooms equipped with proper boards. The German government funded the activity at a total cost of nearly AFN 3.9 million.

The new equipment will potentially improve the quality of teaching.  Blackboards are part of important teaching material that help teachers designing rather interactive lessons. As a result, learning capacities of children will increase. Students will be able to better understand and to remember teaching content.

“About 80,000 male and female students will benefit from better teaching and learning, effecting the quality of education in Baghlan.”, the head of the Provincial Education Department, Mr Ghulam Mohiuddin Pikan, said.

Implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, the Basic and Secondary Education Programme (BEPA) is dedicated at strengthening the capacity of the Afghan school system and improving access to education. To achieve this objective, BEPA focuses on improving the quality of teacher education to provide high-quality education to all Afghan children. In cooperation with lecturers and student teachers, BEPA develops and implements a practice-oriented teacher-training programme at teacher training colleges.
