  • Description



    Greetings for the day! (Khamma Ghani / welcome )

    Our project is a residential school under our family NGO keenly wants to ensure that the next generation kids are educated about sustainable ways of living. The 12 acres of campus is located in a village nearby udaipur where we run a play school and senior school upto standard 10th. We have hostel with 20 students from Rajasthan and outside state with accommodation facilities on board. we are young enthusiasts couple ( age 27 ) and sole makers of this project .

    The damage which humans have done to the enviroment for fulfilling their never ending dreams is catastrophic. Now, it has become important to think about our future generations who are the torch bearers of our country.

    The urge of pumping the young minds with sustainable living options will help them reap the benefits of lifestyle from their daily home chores & basic education. To streamline the process of teaching kids, we have categorized their activities under five simple themes – solar, water, agriculture, waste and health. We want to build workable models from our enviroment with no or minimal harm to Nature. We want to cover diverse areas like kitchen garden, waste management, solar power, benefits of art, taking care of animals, etc. And in the process, there is a lot of learning about the surroundings, effect of your daily chores and much more. This can give them a complete understanding of their daily choices and how are that is affecting their surrounding.

    We believe in making humans with good values and respect towards mother EARTH .
