The USAID Capacity Building Activity Project (CBA) promotes civil society engagement with local government and oversight of education services. In July 2019, USAID-trained community education monitors (CEMs) in Kandahar Province inspected the construction of the Ghazi Mohammad Akbar Khan High School and determined that the contractor was using substandard construction materials and that the construction laborers had not been hired from the local village, as required by the construction contract.
