A Memorandum of Understanding between the Ministry of Agriculture and AVSI to develop public agriculture schools


The Minister of Agriculture, Akram Chehayeb, signed an MoU with AVSI, an Italian NGO to implement a project entitled the "Comprehensive Education Project" which includes the Ministry's technical agricultural school operating in 7 regions in Lebanon.  The signing took place during a ceremony attended by the EU ambassador Angelina Eichhorst.
The head of the higher agricultural education department, Abir Abulkhudud, presented a summary of the EU-funded project and its key areas of work which will include: training of students in technical agricultural and human skills, training of 131 teachers, developing a technical training curriculum, refurbishing the agricultural schools, and organising summer training for students.  Chehayeb noted that the project will target the agriculture schools in Akkar, Batrun, Metn, Chuf, Nabatieh, Marje3yoon and Baalbek.  He hoped that the project will meet its objectives and reiterated that developing agricultural technical schools is a key pillar of his Ministry and that improving the quality of these schools will reflect positively on agricultural production and will result in the development of agricultural areas.
