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.

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.

For a plant to grow, it needs many things. And our all girls agri-based school is no different. Over the past few years, The Good Harvest School has been given all the love and support it needs to grow. With the help of partners around the globe, what started as a vision has now become a small movement. People like you have come forward and donated their time, talent and money to keep this mission going. And with a bunch of teachers, a few acres of land, and an unrelenting spirit, we managed to change people's perspective towards education, towards agriculture, and most importantly towards their girl child.

But what remains unchanged is our aim: to bring the joy of growing food to our community. At The Good Harvest School, we introduce farming at early learning ages with the primary education to village girls. Hopefully with your support, this mission will continue to touch and transform many lives by next year.

Happy New Year.

Dear friends,

We are excited that a lot is happening at the school that you have created. The Good Harvest School is reaching out to more students from marginalized families and helping them stay in school. Not only villagers but local authorities are appreciating the school’s culture. This year, we’ve hosted more friends and volunteers as compared to the last year. Last month, we’ve hosted 6 volunteers and an architectural team from Delhi to help us with sustainable school design. We are also working on calendar for Year 2019 as a part of our fundraising activity - designed by an art teacher from Belgium. Moreover, we are making progress in agriculture too, for the first time we are doing Button mushrooms, and our students of class 3 & 4 are taking a lead in it. It is such an encouragement to see their involvement in growing food.

I encourage you to visit us whenever time allows you. You can also follow us on Facebook and Instagram. Please continue to pray for our school and all our students, your support is our strength.

Much Love
Ashita
