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.

We are excited that a lot is happening at the school that you have created. The Good Harvest School is reaching out to more girls from the community and helping them stay in school. Not only villagers but local authorities are appreciating the school’s culture. We are encouraged to see the change around us.
On the agriculture front, for the winter season we are focusing on Broccoli, Purple Cabbage and Mushrooms. Our plan is to slowly become 100% self-sustainable through agricultural income.
I encourage you to visit us whenever time allows you. Please follow our Facebook and Instagram page for frequent updates. Kindly continue to support us. We need a few more classrooms before December. To construct one sq ft of area we need roughly Rs. 1150/-, we are hopeful that slowly we will be able to build it completely.
Thank you so much for your love and trust.

Dear friend,

It's always a joy for me to write on behalf of the school. We have entered into the fourth school year and it's amazing to look back. So many incredible stories and memories we have. Education is and perhaps the only option to empower our society especially girls. In a short span of 3 years all our students have pushed themselves hard and progressed well. We are in awe of their learning skills and enthusiasm. And for all this and more we are indebted to you. Your kind contributions has helped us to continue investing in the all round development of our school girls. Now we are motivated to aim for the next 20 years. We are gearing up to build proper classrooms and basic amenities, with this new campaign we are raising funds for the construction and a mini bus. We are hopeful that we would continue to get your support. I am also excited to announce that by 2022 we are aiming to be 100% self sufficient. Which means that we would only need your love and blessings to run the school and of course your visit would be a cherry on the cake. We are hopeful.
In the month of April this year we had the wonderful opportunity to present the idea of green school for rural girls at two TEDx events of which one talk is uploaded. Please watch it, and share. Here’s the link

We request you to kindly support us generously and encourage people around to contribute towards one square feet of construction area. According to our estimation one sq ft construction would cost roughly Rs.1150/-. Our goal this year is beyond our capabilities, but when we see our girls coming to school every day with so much joy we are willing to push ourselves. And ultimately we have our hope in God and you dear friend.
Here’s the link to our new campaign. Please visit it and share it with your friends and family.

Dear friends,

We are humbled by the amount of support that we have received in the last three years. You have helped us establish, sustain and now we are planning to expand the school. We are about to finish this year’s academic session and the entire year has been truly encouraging. Our students have become a better version of themselves. And so have we.

Their lives inspire us every day. But now that we are growing we are making some big decisions for the next year. We need more classrooms to accommodate new children and better basic facilities. Currently we are working on our campus’s layout, voluntarily a team of Delhi Architects is helping us. Along with this mail I am sharing the first draft of it. We would be happy to receive any feedback on it. We have always believed that The Good Harvest School is a collective effort and we have come thus far with the continuous support extended by you dear partners.

In the month of April, we were invited to give talks at two TEDx events, where we could share about the school and the importance of teaching agriculture from the beginning. And all this we were able to do because you believed in us.

For this academic session we are extending our campaign for two more weeks. We will end the campaign on 15 May. Thank you again for supporting us. We wish that someday you can visit us and see how much change you have brought in the lives of young girls.

Thank you so much for all the love and support.

Much love.
The Good Harvest Team.
