German ambassador Michael Steiner here on Wednesday donated a 40-seater bus to a school in Kupwara district of Kashmir.

Steiner, who is currently on a visit to Kashmir, donated the bus to Shah Anwar Memorial Secondary School, Kupwara, at a function held at Help Foundation orphanage in Hazratbal area here.

After handing over the keys, the German ambassador boarded the bus with the school kids for a ride.

"The ambassador interacted with the kids at the orphanage and their teachers," an official of the German embassy said.

Yesterday, Steiner inaugurated a solar lighting plant at Gogoldara in Baramulla district and handed it over to locals.

"My ninth visit to Kashmir this year is part of our continuous social and civic commitment for this troubled place - from health care to education.

"Within our limited possibilities, we lend focused, sustainable support on a people-to-people basis. Our engagement is about striking a true chord with the Kashmiris," Steiner had said yesterday.
