Meaningful project from IHH for Africa
IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation is carrying out an extensive project in order to develop agriculture in Africa, which struggles against poverty and hunger, in order to minimize the effects of drought.

IHH is raising agricultural educators who will implement modern agricultural methods in sub-Saharan countries such as Somalia, Ethiopia, Chad, Niger, Sudan and Kenya.

Agricultural trainers who complete the applied training program offered by agricultural engineers assigned by Turkish Cooperation and Development Agency (TİKA) will be appointed to their own villages where they will teach modern methods of agriculture to the locals. The project, which has begun to be implemented in Somalia, aims to develop garden cultivation in rural areas by benefiting from the water wells opened by IHH.

In this way, there will be a switch from field agriculture to garden cultivation thanks to water wells, which will enable the families in villages to grow their own products.

The construction of an implementation area necessary for the agricultural school began last month. In this area which will be established in Somalia’s capital city of Mogadishu, there will be a water well, a garden and a greenhouse to be cultivated by future agricultural educators.

The fact that there are no industrial agricultural businesses and the people’s agricultural activities in the rural areas is dependent on rainfall, is seen as the primary reason of hunger seen in sub-Saharan countries, in Somalia in particular.

With the agricultural project, IHH, which has so far opened water wells in 910 villages in Somalia, aims to ensure switch from field agriculture to garden cultivation with a sustainable method and minimum cost, hoping that this will minimize the effects of drought on agriculture.
