Jordanian Manar Al-Naeem has launched “My Farm” initiative in a bid to spread awareness among farmers and change the social negative perspective toward the job of farming and agriculture as a profession.

Within the context of her initiative, Al-Naeem cooperated with a team of youth who believe in agriculture as a profession. The goal is to reach high standards in the safe use pesticides and the general principles of safety in agriculture, in an attempt to attract younger generations into the field, giving them new job opportunities and establishing water-effective gardens and spreading water awareness to less fortunate schools. This aims at educating students on the benefits of agriculture and the privileges of volunteering and preserving the environment.
