Manar Al Naim, 24 Balqa

My Farm

Manar launched My Farm to spread awareness among farmers about sustainable agriculture and the safe application of pesticides. My Farm also deploys teams of youth leaders who believe in sustainable agriculture to change the negative cultural perception that farming is a low-class profession. Sixty farmers participated at her project's launch ceremony in Deir Allah's Department of Agriculture. Since then, Manar has spread awareness through social media, 500 brochures, 25 roadside signs, and comedic interactive plays. In the future, she hopes to establish gardens in less fortunate schools to teach students about agriculture and the benefits of volunteering.
