ADFCA Supports Graduation Projects at College of Food and Agriculture
Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority (ADFCA) is offering continuous support to graduation projects undertaken by national students from various educational institutions affiliated to the Ministry of Higher Education. This is part of the Auwn program for community service under ADFCA. Various segments of the community benefit from this program which strengthens the concept of social responsibility for government and private organizations towards the public.
Recently, ADFCA sponsored the graduation projects of girl students from the 2013-2014 batch at the College of Food and Agriculture at the UAE University. There is close connection between the college and ADFCA in its capacity as directly responsible for food and agriculture in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
Mohamed Jalal Al Rayssi, Director of Communication and Community Service at ADFCA, said ADFCA would support four graduation projects every year provided the applicants were students of any of the institutions affiliated to the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research and have a GPA no less than three.
Al Rayssi said that the applicants – both as individuals or as a team – must apply with a letter from the institution along with their mark sheets for exams prior to graduation and a detailed presentation of their project, its objectives and targeted segment.
Al Rayssi stressed that ADFCA aimed at supporting and sponsoring through the Auwn program various segments of the local community such as the elderly, the sick, pupils, jail inmates and other charitable projects. "This support can be moral or material, including exhibitions for artifacts produced by manufacturing family units or special needs people.
