McLean, VA — August 2011 – DGC International’s President Mustafa Zamani recently visited the four sports field and complex sites to survey the work progress and listen to local and government concerns.
Mr. Zamani visited all four sites, located in Kabul, Jalalabad, and Mazar-e-Sharif. U.S. Embassy representatives were also on hand to monitor the work progress. DGC International and our partner, ASF, are currently on schedule to complete the four sites as planned by December 2011.
Construction of the four sites will employ hundreds of Afghans. The United States Embassy of Afghanistan and the American people have generously provided the funding for this project. The local Afghan governments have also been very supportive and cooperative in regard to moving the project forward.”Due to our efforts, ASF’s, the U.S. Embassy’s, and local government leaders, Afghan men, women and children will be able to play, meet and enjoy the great outdoors and sports,” pledged DGC International’s President Mustafa Zamani. He noted the importance the local government is placing on urban development and the importance of parks and recreational facilities as key cornerstones of communities and cities.
The sites will enhance the sports character of different areas of the city, and each park will include a field, basketball courts, volleyball courts and a playground. These projects will provide youth, men and women the opportunity to have a place to play and compete. DGC International will soon be posting a video clip highlighting the work progress at Sports and Recreation Facilities for the People of Afghanistan.
DGC International is committed to assisting the US Embassy to promote sustainable projects for youth and the people of Afghanistan.
