Construction of the University of Central Asia campus in Khorog, Tajikistan progresses as the school prepares to open its doors in September 2017. With support from a $30 million loan from OPIC, the university will offer an extensive curriculum in earth and environmental sciences and economics, computer sciences, communications, engineering, as well as business and management.

In addition to addressing a shortage of education infrastructure in the country, the project is supporting hundreds of construction jobs with on-the-job training.
