Turkish agencies bring modern agriculture to Somalia

Students have grown a variety of agricultural products for the first time at the Agriculture School in Somalia, founded by Turkey-based agencies.

Melon, cucumber, aubergine, bean and tomato varieties were successfully cultivated for the first time.

The Agriculture School Project in Somalia was put in practice in 2012, by the IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation in collaboration with the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TIKA).

Within the scope of the project, TIKA also established a greenhouse on the campus settlement in 2016 in order to teach modern farming techniques.
