THE GOOD HARVEST SCHOOL
AN AGRI-BASED PRIMARY SCHOOL FOR GIRLS
A girls’ school in a village focused to give exceptional educational opportunities for the less fortunate. Our aim is to transform the current education system in villages. Clearly we have different visions for a girl born in a city and a farmer’s daughter in a village. At The Good Harvest School, an all-girls’ environment provides a wonderful opportunity for girls to explore who they are as young women without social pressure. We seek to establish strong bonds of connections between the girls, to open up and share their feelings and empathize with one another. We offer a comfortable learning atmosphere with strong female role models as their positive mentors, equipping our students to adapt to the ever changing demands of the world.
The Good Harvest School introduces agriculture in classrooms and promotes sustainable green education without any monetary benefits from its students.
Agriculture is not a male dominated field anymore. It is actually women who often outdo men. From selecting seeds, preparing and sowing to transplanting the seedlings, applying manure and then harvesting, winnowing and threshing, women work harder and longer on the field than men. Yet, we fail to recognize their hard work. The Good Harvest School is a small and a long-term effort to groom young girls from the farming community to make right choices from the beginning.
The Good Harvest School is the first green school where girls get to learn regular subjects as well as extensive lessons on sustainable agriculture.
