KABUL, Afghanistan — The Lithuanian-led Provincial Reconstruction team (PRT-7) recently donated school furniture to the Ghowr province education department, providing 330 tables and 660 chairs to the five schools of Ghowr province.

The idea to provide furniture for schools was born after the schools were built by the Lithuania PRT. The furniture donation will complete the construction of these buildings.

“We are really very happy to work with the PRT in our education process,” said the director of the Education Department Muhammad Naeem. “The soldiers and civilians have already done a lot to help our pupils. Our children used to learn under the open sky. Now they can study at schools, which have furniture too.
