The first stage of the education and agricultural applications at the school has been completed successfully after a period of four weeks.

Three agricultural engineers offer education to the students at the agricultural school. As part of the education program, the students stay at the school for six days a week and take one day off.
In addition to applied training, students are also offered theoretical education.

A greenhouse was established in Somalia for the first time with the project and vegetables such as yellow melon and eggplant were for the first time produced in the country. In addition, drip irrigation method has for the first time begun to be used in the country.
