Germany To Inject 20m Euro Into Afghan Jobs Program

 

MRRD officials said in addition to Germany’s aid, the ministry also plans to invest $20 million into the uplift projects that will be established in villages.
 

The Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development (MRRD) on Thursday announced that Germany is set to inject nearly 20 million Euros into Afghanistan’s National Employment Program.

MRRD officials stated that in addition to Germany’s aid, the ministry also plans to invest $20 million into the development projects that will be established in villages. 

“The 20 million Euros will be spent on funding the employment projects in 1396 (the new solar year), this will help some citizens find long term and short term jobs,” said Akbar Rustami, spokesman for the MRRD.

Commenting on this latest development, the labor union said government cannot resolve the problem of unemployment in the country by providing short term jobs and stressed the need for the implementation of major projects in the country to boost economic growth and job opportunities.

“These programs which are announced by the ministry of urban development and rural rehabilitation are for the short term, the villagers who are hired on these jobs again become jobless once the projects are complete,” said Maruf Qaderi, head of labor union.

If you really want to help Afghanistan this is the way to do it! I will bet you this money will stay in the pockets of the working people that deserve it in Afghanistan not making a U turn back to where it came from.
