To bring children of farming community into the flow of the development to improve their standard of living and educational level ADT stepped up in the field of education. With the realization that‘single educated woman can transform the destiny of her entire family’, the foundation of an educational complex for girls on an open waste land was laid. In this campus more than 7000 girls from primary to post-graduation level are taking education. Particularly, through the ‘Earn and Learn’ initiative, many girls from poor families are standing firmly on their feet.
While fulfilling the technological needs of farmers it also realized that foreign technology could bring more sustainability in agriculture, hence the establishment of Agriculture College campus has been made to provide quality Education for International programmes in Agriculture, Animal Husbandry and Agribusiness Management in collaboration with the Van Hall Larenstien University of Netherlands. Likewise ADT have signed MoU with international universities like Yunan Agriculture University China, Asian Institute of Technology Bangkok, UC Davis University California for staff and student exchange programmes.
