The Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TIKA) has completed its kitchen gardening project in Rawalpindi, distributing steel framed racks among 500 houses in the city.
A delegation led by TIKA Country Coordinator Mohsin Balci was thanked by Rawalpindi Development Authority Chairman Tariq Mehmood Murtaza for the initiative.
On the occasion, the delegation informed Murtaza that it would soon launch new projects in collaboration with the RDA to create employment for the youth, and will also be working on a rainwater harvesting project.
The RDA chairman responded by appreciating the agency’s efforts and said that the primary agenda of the incumbent government is to improve the life and social status of the people.
“The purpose of these small and large social sector projects in Pakistan is to provide employment to the people so that they can earn a living as well as have access to quality vegetables grown naturally, which will improve their health and reduce their expenses,” said Murtaza.
He also thanked the Turkish government, the Turkish people and especially TIKA for their financial support.
