Summary

Aarohi has initiated a school farm project to integrate agriculture into its curriculum and further our goal of experiential learning by teaching subjects-Mathematics, Science and Social Sciences-and useful life skills through practical work done in the fields. The school has identified a patch of land within the campus and would be building a greenhouse and a water storage facility and we are seeking your support to build a greenhouse and water storage facilities.

Challenge

Agriculture is a major source of livelihood and a reality for the families of children studying in the school. Yet, the curriculum in text books and teaching doesn't reflect this reality. While a lot of activities are done to make learning experiential, farming and gardening haven't been integrated into school's activities. Hence there is a disconnect between what is studied in school and the life in their villages.

Solution

By building a greenhouse and creating a gardening area within the premises of the school, we would have an opportunity to use the farming skills children already possess to teach Designing, Researching, Data Handling, Mathematics, Science, and Environmental Science and make learning experiential, practical and interesting. At the same time, it provides school an opportunity to show how farming could benefit from ancient wisdom and modern science and make it a viable livelihood option.

Long-Term Impact

This project would enable Aarohi help students make connections with everyday reality and understand the relevance of subjects, fostering a joy of learning. It gives school an opportunity to teach about sustainability, conservation and environment friendly living. By showing the possibilities of making a livelihood through smart agricultural practices it could stem the migration of youth-a major issue in this region-in the long run. Overall, it has the potential to make Aarohi a model school.
