The Rural Development Program is dedicated to supporting Egyptian farmers and their families.
The program seeks to help improve the productivity and health of targeted rural communities by providing new agricultural models and farming techniques, veterinary services, and funding for various farming projects.
The program also makes a conscious effort to improve the lives of women in rural communities, offering them opportunities to build their professional capacities and assist them in finding new marketing venues.
The primary objective of the Rural Development Program is to help improve the overall health and productivity of targeted rural communities, enabling all community members to acquire a higher standard of living.
For the first time in Al-zaar village, the Bishopric implemented governmental veterinary vaccination campaigns from which the community greatly benefitted.
The Bishopric also initiated an awareness campaign to educate about the importance of vaccines, how to protect and properly treat animals, and how to achieve the greatest productivity from their resources.
Since Al-zaar has implemented these practices, they have experienced zero deaths in their livestock from disease - an accomplishment.
