Support An Agri-Based Primary School.

The Good Harvest School is an initiative by young women from diverse fields who aim at providing quality education to village-girls and nurture them with values and competencies by giving the right balance between curriculum and extra-curricular activities. We aim to help our students stand abreast with students across the globe.

At The Good Harvest School the girls are given education beyond just books. The school being nestled amidst farm fields provides ample of opportunities to learn from the natural surroundings and breaks the monotony of being restricted within four walls of the classroom.  Basic education, agriculture lessons and co-curricular activities form an integral part of the curriculum. Exposure trips from time to time and interactions with volunteers from across the globe are a regular feature of the School.
Why an agri-based schools?

Agriculture, with its allied sectors, is unquestionably the largest livelihood provider in India, more so in the vast rural areas. It also contributes a significant figure to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Sustainable agriculture, in terms of food security, rural employment, and environmentally sustainable technologies such as soil conservation, sustainable natural resource management and biodiversity protection, are essential for holistic rural development.

The need of the hour is to introduce innovative and new techniques of farming and expose the girls to scientific learning and improved farming practices so that the known problems faced by their family would not deter them from continuing their family profession.  And with the awareness of extensive scope in agriculture they could choose to set themselves a notch above the rest.

At The Good Harvest School an open space is provided for students to learn about good farming practices. The students get a hands on experience in preparing seed beds, grow a variety of saplings/seedlings in nursery and become aware of the know-how of new-age agriculture.


From being non-school goers to becoming regular to school, our girls have come a long way. They have shown tremendous progress in all areas and have emerged confident and expressive, they show readiness to learn and embrace a novel concept with ease. It’s a delight to see some of them being able to read 4-5 letter words in Hindi and their keenness to converse in English.  Their lives are a beautiful story of challenges and hope; they show immense enthusiasm and determination to be present at school every day.

WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT.

With a good response and support from the parents and girls over the last seven months we intend to run two more classes in the new academic session beginning from July. Our focus is to build low-cost infrastructure in the beginning and save more for educational aids and teachers’ remuneration. We believe spending more on books and not on bricks.

For the next session (2017-18), we will be starting two new classes. We are aiming to have a total of 45 students.
We will need Rs- 1225/month/student.
With the raised donation we will be able to give salaries, transportation fee for students, stationery, educational trips and bear all agricultural expenses.
