Additionally, we’ve secured partnerships with 15 organizations, with whom we’re collaborating on a project basis. They’ve come aboard through memorandum activities and associate memberships. Our organization is picking up steam rapidly, actively engaging in initiatives. We’re dedicated to enhancing our effectiveness, including through partnerships with government institutions,” he explained.
