According to TOLOnews, recent rains and floods have destroyed about 70 schools and madrassas in Afghanistan's Uruzgan province and their repair work is being hampered due to lack of adequate funds.

Shamsullah Kamran, head of education in Uruzgan, said that the Uruzgan education department lacks sufficient funds to rebuild these schools.

He said, “As a result of rains and floods, about seventy schools have been completely or partially destroyed. If organizations do not pay attention to these schools, we will have to face big problems.

Many teachers and students in the province claim that the educational process has slowed down as a result.

He says most of the students in the schools which were damaged are now studying in open areas or private residences.

According to teacher Sirajuddin Sirajmal, “Students are in a situation where they have no place to learn,” TOLOnews reports.

Lamenting the situation, Javed, a student, said, “We sit in the sun; We have nothing, and teachers do not come, forcing us to go back home.”

Another student said, “We demand the government to rebuild our schools so that we can continue our studies.”

According to TOLOnews, locals of Uruzgan have also expressed concern over the loss of educational facilities. Local people claim that this will have a detrimental effect on the educational development of their children.

They demand that interim government officials and relief agencies immediately rebuild the damaged schools.
