Students from the Visually Impaired Vocational High School on Sunday called on government to reconstruct parts of the compound that were destroyed in a recent attack on the American University of Afghanistan (AUAF).
The head master of the school, Khwaja Abdul Karim Sediqi, said that the delay in repairing the damaged sections of the school has created problems for students as they now study in classes without windows and doors.
“Most parts of the building are damaged and need to be repaired,” he added.
Meanwhile, a number of students from the school said that it is difficult for them to study in classes without doors and windows.
“Nothing has been done here to repair the school,” Maliha, a student at the school said.
The Ministry of Education meanwhile said they will soon start work on repairing the school.
“The cost of repairing the school has been estimated. We will soon start work on reconstructing the damaged parts of the school in order to provide a safe environment for its students,” said Raheel Formuli, deputy head of vocational studies at the Ministry of Education.
Nearly 226 students including 67 girls are studying at the Visually Impaired Vocational High School.
