  • Description


    Hi, My wife and I run an agri-based primary school in rural India. We are based in a small village in Northern India (Jabrella, Unnao (near Lucknow), Uttar Pradesh, India). Our focus is 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 our school, an all-girls' environment provides a wonderful opportunity for girls to explore who they are as young women without social pressure. An open space is provided for students to learn about good farming practices too. 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. Apart from the school, we have a small farm and a few farm animals.

    We would be happy to have more and more volunteers to visit us, we need teachers, travelers, artists, musicians, gardeners, story-tellers, and you. We believe, the more people our students meet the better they'll learn. Unfortunately, most of our girls come from low-income families, and they end-up doing 7-8 hours of house chores every day. Coming to school is a break for them. At the school, they get to play and learn freely.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are based in a small village in rural India. Most of the villagers are farmers or day-laborers. One could explore and travel around the area easily, nearby we have over 200 years old temple and river right next to the farm. At our farm we are trying to follow zero-budget farming on a small scale, we would be happy to share our learning.
