With the aim of supporting students and their small projects and generating new ideas to establish additional projects that contribute to achieving self-sufficiency for young people and their families, the Faculty of Agricultural Engineering at Al-Baath University in Homs implemented a workshop entitled (Models for Successful Student Projects) during which nine different productive projects were presented.

Dr. Muhammad Al-Masri, Dean of the Faculty of Agricultural Engineering at the university, stressed to SANA Youth the importance of the projects presented by the students, which confirmed their ability to achieve small projects that achieve productivity and financial return, in light of the current living conditions, pointing out that the lighting on the projects gave an incentive for other students to implement their own projects as well, some of which are economically feasible and important development.

Student Reem Al-Youssef said: I presented a project on the production of rose water and drying medicinal and aromatic plants, and I started this work against the background of the presence of all kinds of roses in our garden and in large quantities, which prompted me to establish my own project in the manufacture of rose water, jams, syrup and drying flowers in simple traditional ways, hoping that this project will turn into a source of income for her even after her graduation because she seeks to expand and develop it always.

Student Bassel Diop, owner of the tropical fruits project, said: "Nothing is difficult in life, we as young people have to be patient and have the will and courage to launch our ideas and turn them into sustainable projects for us," considering that his project is one of the very successful projects that generate excellent financial income, as he began by planting simple samples of several varieties in the Sahel region, where his family lives.

He added: Later, I worked on expanding my project until I have about 150 tropical varieties of saton apples, avocados, cream, draconfruit, hybrid patience of all three types and others, in addition to growing saffron, stressing the importance of the workshop implemented by the college to be a supportive start for students wishing to establish their own projects.

The owner of the scented candles project, student Taima Ezz El-Din, talked about the beginnings of her small project and her acquisition of simple candle molds until the project began to expand by avoiding errors and improving her product until she achieved her financial return.

For her part, student Rahaf Ali, owner of the agricultural nursery project, called on all students to implement small projects for them because of their great importance in their lives and the lives of their families, as Ali began planting simple seedlings of vegetables with recycling of some plastic materials to be used in the cultivation process.

She pointed out that her nursery has become over time one of the large nurseries in her region, especially as it includes all kinds of seedlings of vegetables, fruits and decorative roses, and has many customers and a number of workers in the nursery, in addition to the daily marketing of its products.

Student Dima Hakami stressed that any project begins with an idea that must be implemented and developed and unleashed the creative ideas of young people, indicating that the medicinal and aromatic products project that she started two years ago has become one of the basics of her life, although she is still a student.

She pointed out that through her project, she extracts oils from aromatic and medicinal plants, makes several products for hair and skin, and treats some skin problems, saying: "As all my materials are from nature, they are full of vitamins and antioxidants," and she is currently marketing her products in most Syrian governorates, and she has a special page on Facebook and a special logo for her products, as she mentioned.
