USAID Provides Grant Money To Repair Day-Care Center in Afghanistan


Kabul, Afghanistan
April 25, 2002

At a day-care center damaged and abandoned during two decades of fighting in Afghanistan, U.S. Ambassador Robert P. Finn (center) and Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Livestock Mohammed Sharif (second from left) discuss the future opening of the center with other Afghan Ministry officials.  The center, which will be refurbished soon under a grant from the U.S. Agency for International Development, will provide services and care for the children of Ministry employees; this will enable many women to return to work at the Ministry. Four USAID grants, totalling $171,000, will be used to provide electricity, water, and telephones to this and other Ministry buildings that were also damaged and abandoned.
