He said such activities support land affiliation, serve the urban environment, and achieve part of the home’s food self-sufficiency, noting the ministry’s willingness to support these projects through training, rehabilitation, and assistance in their development using modern technologies.

The minister also valued the efforts of those involved and the children and young people taking part in an initiative that is beneficial to the nation and society.

She added that such communication allows students to participate in the planning of the future and to promote a sense of responsibility and belonging to the country.
