As part of its social responsibility toward the environment and the agricultural sectors in the Kingdom, MenaITech the leading provider of human capital management systems in the region, announced its Bronze Sponsorship of the “Plant your Homeland” campaign launched by the Arab Group for the Protection of Nature (APN) on October 10, 2019.
With this sponsorship, MenaITech emphasized its focus on and social responsibility toward important economic sectors such as the agricultural sector and supporting small-scale farmers because this sector contributes 4% to Jordan’s GDP today.
Last month, the Arab Group for The Protection of Nature (APN) launched the “Plant Your Homeland” campaign as part of the “Green Caravan” program in partnership with Radio Dahab to support small scale Jordanian farmers.
The yearlong campaign aims to plant 6,000 fruit-bearing trees in lands belonging to small scale farmers in Jordan during the year.
The campaign organizers are looking to boost the Jordanian agricultural sector, promote local production, enhance food security, and raise environmental awareness among citizens regarding the importance of agriculture and its role in combating climate change.
“The company’s sponsorship of the campaign comes to support the agricultural sector which is directly linked to our food and natural resources,” said Dr. Bashar Hawamdeh the CEO and founder of MenaITech.
He also pointed out that the company’s participation underlines the important role the campaign plays in empowering small-scale farmers in Jordan and providing an additional source of income for them since most of farmers need some basic tools that enable them to take care of their agricultural lands, stressing the need for everyone to join forces in order to reduce and to prevent farmers selling off their agricultural lands.
