She has urged the trainees to embrace the opportunity to rapidly develop their skills to apply on a larger scale.

The trainees will return to Kenya equipped with skills and fresh perspectives and contribute to the development of the Nation.

The 2023 Mashav Agricultural Training Program is a product of the strong relationship between the two nations.
