On 22 March, minister for Development Cooperation Lilianne Ploumen visited the teacher training programme set up by Wageningen UR in the Afghan capital Kabul. The minister was happy that the school for agricultural education was making progress.
Minister Ploumen visited the National Agricultural Education College (NAEC) together with a delegation of the Dutch embassy. She talked with deputy director Ayesha Sabri, several teachers and female students of the teacher training programme. Ploumen also visited the NAEC in March 2013. She was happy to visit the NAEC again and to be able to see the progress. ‘It is good that you focus on the agricultural sector in Afghanistan. Because you work with local materials and work low tech, the students can later also use these methods and techniques in their provinces’, says Ploumen in Resource, the newsmagazine of Wageningen UR.
