The TIKA, which is a government body under the Turkish Prime Ministry, also provided the school in Karabakh district with materials to activate the school's computer, physics, chemistry and biology laboratories, Anadolu Agency reported.
TIKA repaired the building of the school and its sports arena, and established laboratories, which were previously unavailable, TIKA's Coordinator in Kabul Suleyman Sahin said in his speech at the school’s opening ceremony.
