Farmer Family That Never Went to High School, Donates Land for Village Kids’ Education

Farmer Family That Never Went to High School, Donates Land for Village Kids’ Education

farmer family of eight, none of whose members has studied beyond intermediate, donated a piece of land belonging to them to build a high school in their village of Bhura Vasantpur in Aonla tehsil in UP.

The donation papers were signed and turned over to the District Inspector of Schools Gajendra Kumar last week. “This farmer family totally relies on agriculture and donating a piece of land, measuring 962 square meters, evaluated to be approximately Rs 8 lakh, is a great contribution,” Kumar told Times of India. 

The head of the family is farmer Krishan Pal Singh. He is the co-owner of the land, along with his five sons and two daughters-in-law.

The family members say they have always dreamt of building a school so that the children in their village, and others from adjoining areas, don’t have to travel to far off places to get an education.

According to one of the sons, Gajendra Singh, “A piece of land was allotted by gram sabha for developing a government high school in the village, but it fell short by around 50 square meters. With this piece of land, which is adjacent to land provided by gram sabha, construction of school will commence soon.”
