distributions made to AL-Najaf for
SCHOOLS AND OTHER projects
Al-Najaf, Al-Najaf. The Coalition Provisional
Authority South-Central today provided around $290,000 (464,000,000 Iraqi
Dinars*) to fund community repair projects in An Najaf Province.
Of the total amount, $190,000 (304,000,000
Iraqi Dinars*) will be used to repair and improve school buildings within An
Najaf Province. Repairing and improving these schools creates a better
learning environment for children and increases opportunities for their futures
as they learn in a free Iraq. CPA believes that a good educational system
is essential as Iraq progresses toward self-government.
The An Najaf Province project funding,
which will employ local people from the community, is part of a larger
initiative to help Iraqis as they move forward toward democracy. CPA
South-Central will announce other projects in the coming weeks.
* Assuming $1 equal 1,600 Iraqi Dinars.
