Community members use the new crossing just before completion.
USAID’s Local Governance and Community Development project and the Department of Education completed construction of a pipe culvert crossing to provide safe access to Abu Al Fatah Bosti School (the largest school compound in Nahri Sarraj District) for parents, children, and vehicles delivering supplies. The old and unstable bridge was a longstanding community grievance. Through these activities and the district governor’s active involvement, the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan is visibly demonstrating the ability to provide and maintain a viable educational infrastructure in Hilmand Province.
