An Essay by Aziz J.

I live in the village of Gharibra in the Jaghori district of Ghazni province. There are 36 families in this village. The people are farmers who farm many things including wheat, beans, apricots, apples, berries, grapes, melons (including watermelon), lettuce, onions, carrots, potatoes, turnips, basil and spearmint.

My favorite crops are lettuce, carrots and spearmint.

My people value education and have one school for boys and one school for girls. Both schools have nine classes. The students like education and go to school every day.
