Herat Faculty of Education opens - 03-26-2012, 08:44 PM
USAID and Ministry of Higher Education officials opened the faculty that includes modern laboratories, classrooms and offices. It is one of six new buildings funded by USAID at universities in Bamyan, Parwan, Balkh, Faryab, Jawzjan and Herat.
“We are proud that this building will help Herat University continue to modernise, grow and meet the needs of its student body,” said Deputy US Ambassador James B. Cunningham.
The Faculties of Education Project is a component of USAID’s Higher Education Project (HEP) that supports the ministry’s efforts to improve the quality of academics in Afghanistan.
A statement from the USAID quoted Dean Juma Hanif as saying: “Since 2003 there have been considerable improvements in the professional capacity of the professors of this university because of the help of USAID.”
USAID’s Higher Education Project has been designed in collaboration with the ministry and works with the institutions offering four-year teacher education programmes in Afghanistan to strengthen planning and faculty skills through training, scholarships and material support.
A line[Durrand line] of hatred that raised a wall between the two brothers -Hamid Karzai
The men of Kábul and Khilj also went home; and whenever they were questioned about the Musulmáns of the Kohistán (the mountains), and how matters stood there, they said, "Don't call it Kohistán, but Afghánistán; for there is nothing there but Afgháns and disturbances." Thus it is clear that for this reason the people of the country call their home in their own language Afghánistán, and themselves Afgháns. The people of India call them Patán; but the reason for this is not known. But it occurs to me, that when, under the rule of Muhammadan sovereigns, Musulmáns first came to the city of Patná, and dwelt there, the people of India (for that reason) called them Patáns—but God knows!
