The first women’s agricultural cooperative society was formed in the area of Cindirêsê in the canton of Afrîn, with the participation of 12 members of Kongra Star, the communes and members of civil society in the area.
Every member contributed with 25,000 SYP. The cooperative planted lentils on five hectares of agricultural land in the village of Tal Salur in the area of Cindirêsê. A ton of lentil seeds has been bought with the collected money, in addition to organic fertiliser.
The harvest was to be distributed to the members of the project.
Very sadly, the region of Cindirêsê has been under occupation by Turkey, along with the rest of the Afrin Canton, since early 2018, and all co-operatives and democratic projects have been disbanded.
