Himachal Pradesh is a mountainous area where people are highly dependent on agriculture to complement their living in addition to their daily work. However, due to shortage of water and small terraces on sloppy land the agriculture is unsustainable and farm output is not sufficient keeping in mind economic value it gets. Also due to steep terrain and small terraces automated machines have limited usage here. As a result we fear food security in the future as many people are or about to leave agriculture.

RUCHI campus is spread over an area of 3 hectares and has good fertile soil. We at present are using our campus for exploring options of pesticide free scientific farming using natural materials. We have successfully demonstrated, Wormicompost, NADEP compost, Kitchen Gardening, Agroforestry, floriculture, organic farming, orchard development here. At present we are gearing to install hydroponics system at our campus for demonstration, training and self sufficiency. In due course we would like to serve as demonstration centre for farmers.

Covid-19 has challenged our usual way of doing business and our dependency on digital technology is all time high. Having a digital footprint is no more a desire but a necessity for organizations. We have witnessed how people and organizations have used social media as a strong platform for awareness, networking, shopping, education, etc.

We aim to introduce and empower children on digital media in a few select NFE centres. Covid pandemic had increased demand of smart phones for a living and online classes for children. However, due to lack of knowledge these phones are still underutilized. We expect volunteers to educate children and parents on use of these digital devices to optimize their performance.

Volunteers under this project will be based in rural setting and involved in need based protection and conservation activities including creating awareness regarding environmental importance of fresh water. The saying ïf there is going to be a Third World War, it will be on water” goes well for this area too. Even though the area gets ample rainfall there is a perpetual shortage of water in dry months.

Working closely with local community members following tasks shall be undertaken by volunteers.
• Mapping all fresh water bodies within project area.
• Evaluating their present conditions: availability, measuring flow rate, collecting water samples for testing.
• Devise methodology to protect and replenish these fresh water sources using traditional methods and locally available resources.

With Waste Force we aim to create awareness among local community and change their behavior where individuals start to think and deal with their waste in a more responsible way.

Under this campaign at present our focus is to discourage people from burning waste specially “plastic waste” which is widely practiced and also accepted by everyone. Working closely with schools, communities and slum dwellers volunteers are expected to take following tasks:

• Create awareness on importance of waste segregation and disposal at individual and
community level.
• Organising community cleanup campaigns.
• Exploring ideas to reuse non biodegradable waste and stop burning plastics.
• Connecting communities and nearby recycling businesses.
• Organising workshop on recycling aiming to generate entrepreneurship for youth.

India, being one of the fastest emerging economy in the world is facing multitude problems due to rapid urbanization. Lack of waste management is one of them. It is sad to say that there is no solution in near sight as majority of our collected waste from cities is used for landfill. Things become worst in rural area where there is no waste system offered by government and therefore people are left to deal with it at their own. As a result people do what is most convenient to them: throwing it on road, streams, forest or even worst burn it.

Thanks to this ignorant behaviour of people our streams and fresh water sources are getting contaminated and choked, our landscape is being filled with plastics and people are slowly developing respiratory diseases.

During October 2017, RUCHI embarked on an innovative project called Waste Force with the help of 2 Italian interns without funds from any source. The project focuses on 3 dimensions: 1) Education, 2) Action and 3) Recycling workshops.

Since the project is of permanent nature, volunteers are free to join anytime (preferably from any Monday) and for any duration. The participation is also worked out on monthly basis which is Euro 400 per month. Therefore, even if someone leaves after 7 weeks they will be required to pay for full 2 months, i.e. Euro 800

RUCHI believes ”community development” cannot be achieved until women in our society are empowered and are respected within our society. Though a lot has been written about women and their contribution towards society but its a pity that their efforts are still monetarily not accounted in our national GDP. A women plays many roles within Indian society; a daughter, a wife, a mother, a home maker and even labourer to earn wages if need arises. Surprisingly after supporting her family in various ways she is mostly not consulted and involved in household decision making.

RUCHI always recognised women’s efforts and believes that, educating a women educates whole family & therefore keeping that in mind RUCHI has initiated voluntary project facilitating cultural exposure and assisting women to overcome these odds.Since the project is of permanent nature, volunteers are free to join anytime (preferably from any Monday) and for any duration.
