The Rosaleda de los Mártires on July 15 was built on a 2-hectare site owned by the FOREM-EL GOLEA foundation, which serves women and orphans in El Goléa. Next year, the foundation will have the equipment to produce rose-based products such as rose water, rose oil and rose soap using the roses that will be grown in the garden.

Professor Mostefa Khiati, President of FOREM, thanked TİKA and the Republic of Turkey for TİKA’s support and stated that he believes the project will be a great example for those living in the Sahara desert and that the success of the project will lead to initiatives similar to be launched in the region.

FOREM-EL GOLEA

Dr. Alparslan Çevik, TİKA Coordinator, noted that El Goléa, where roses can be harvested twice a year, was an important center of rose production in the early 20th century, but that it lost this position over time. He stated that TİKA aimed to help El Goléa regain this position and contribute to the economic development of the region by enabling the production of rose-based products. Çevik added that they wanted to keep the memory of our martyrs alive by naming the garden after them, and thanked FOREM-EL GOLEA managers for approving this name.
