KAPISA PROVINCE, Afghanistan — Members of the Kentucky National Guard’s Agribusiness Development Team (ADT) are lending a hand to AlBeroni University by delivering much needed equipment.  The ADT delivered a Bobcat Skid Steer to the university which is working to reestablish Afghanistan’s agricultural heritage.  Established in 2000 with a single faculty member, AlBeroni now boasts over 1600 students.

While assisting AlBeroni University, members of the ADT also took time to distribute winter coats to children in the neighboring village.  The Kentucky Guardsmen have added similar humanitarian assistance activities to their overall mission of working with Afghan farmers.
