Nationwide development proceeds
Japan has began to work with HABITAT and the residents of Kabul’s 11th Precinct (Khair Khana) on a number of new projects. The projects will improve the local sewage systems, through the adding of concrete, and local greenery, through the planting of flowers on sub-roads. 1,000 people will receive work through these projects.

This park will take three months to build and will be located next to the Bibi Sarwary Sangari High School.
