While speaking at the 10th anniversary of Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) Scholarship to Afghan Youth here, Singh said: “Rebuilding of relations with other countries is largely dependent on the rise and exchange of education. I appreciate the rise of Afghan female students in India and expect that they help in improving the status of women in Afghanistan.”

The scheme is currently under renewal for next five years to be implemented from 2017-18 to 2021-22, with a special focus on encouraging female Afghan students.
