Support this village start India's first agri-based school.


The Good Harvest School is an initiative by young people who are passionate about bringing a positive change in villages through good education. We always compromise when it comes to education standard in a rural setting. Intentionally or not but we clearly have different visions for a girl born in a city and a farmer’s daughter in a village. 

The Good Harvest School is focused to give exceptional educational opportunities for the less fortunate. At the school, an all-girls' environment will provide a wonderful opportunity for girls to explore who they are as young women without social pressure. 



The Start 

Phase One:  This year we are determined to start two classes, Nursery and Kindergarten. Each class will have maximum 30 students. Through Milaap, we are raising donations to support girls to get good education. We need Rs.14,500/- per student to retain them in school for a year. And with your support, we are confident we can.

Your contribution can bring one girl of Pashim Gaon to The Good Harvest School. Contribute now.

A very warm season’s greetings and a blessed New Year.
Friends, we are delighted to start the year with the release of our first newsletter. As you know The Good Harvest School is founded on a bold and courageous idea, and today we are extremely happy to see that the idea is taking its shape. Rajni is one of our students. Along with her 3 sisters, she too was denied to education by her father who works as a mason. With our repeated visits and counseling we were able to convince her father, and as a result she now is able to come regularly and walks almost 3 kms everyday just to be at the school. She can identify colours, alphabets and numbers. She loves to play with Snowy-the rabbit at the school.          
The Good Harvest School began its journey from the first of September and embraced the first batch of girls all of different ages, with 10 girls of different ages enrolling themselves we decided to keep a preparatory class with a curriculum suited for all.
In the past four months our girls have learnt to work independently as well as in a group. Our focus area had been personal and social hygiene and cleanliness, proper use of toilets, recognition of colours and shapes, language and vocabulary development through play, picture books, story-telling, rhymes. Phonics, pre-numbers and numbers concept, simple addition and subtraction and times tables are some of the things we’ve been working through, they are beginning to recognize and write English and Hindi alphabets and with help they can join letters to form words.
The girls enjoy playing board games, memory card games, Jenga, puzzles and love manipulating the toys of their interest.
They have shown immense delight in coming to school and exploring their capacities despite pressure to stay home to look after their younger siblings or take the cattle out for grazing. Their vocabulary has improved significantly and they are progressing slowly but steadily.
The theme for the month of November and December was wild and domestic animals and hence they were taken to the Zoo which was their first experience, they enjoyed thoroughly and were very excited to have been able to identify the animals.
Our young farmers are gearing up too. On the Agricultural front our students learnt the process of germination by hands on experience and observed the sowing of potatoes and seasonal vegetables. They are also learning animal behavior by observing them on a daily basis and taking special care of two pregnant cows.
Last four months have been incredibly amazing for all of us at The Good Harvest School. And we want to thank you for your generous giving. We are grateful for your generosity, your trust, and most importantly, your commitment to bring quality education to our children.

Regards,
The Good Harvest School

Wish you all the success for this endeavor. Would recommend this book for the educators/pedagogues/lecturers alike. "Weapons of Mass Instruction" by John Taylor Gatto.
