Ghazi and his classmates learn about agriculture at FAO school gardens
24 August 2021
Ghazi Al Weli and his classmates learned about agriculture and healthy diets within their school gardens established by FAO with the support of the government of Japan. This intervention contributes to enriching the national agriculture curriculum in the Syrian Arab Republic with practical activities; therefore, FAO established school gardens in three schools in Hama and two schools in Rural Damascus Governorates. The Organization provided each targeted school with agricultural tools, inputs, vegetable seedlings, solar irrigation systems and drip irrigation equipment. Additionally, FAO trained 85 teachers on managing school gardens to boost their knowledge and skills.
