Army Goodwill School Potha
Addressing one of the major causes of terrorism, lack of education and misguidance, Army undertook an initiative to bring light to the lives of people of the remote area of In Poonch district Suran valley, which was 1 of the worst terrorist affected regions south of Pir-Panjal ranges. AGS Potha thus came into being on 01 Jun 2003 under the aegis of Romeo Force as ‘OP Sadbhavana Education and Welfare Trust, a model village, Potha”. It started with a meager strength because of the fear of psychosis. Army took a major step forward by sponsoring educational expenses, books, and uniforms of children of the region whose parents were killed by terrorists during the period of militancy.
