Work

This is a rural mountain area where the economy of people is purely dependent on agriculture. The area is calm, peaceful and experiences severe winter. However, the small terraced fields do not allow for modern scientific tools and machinery operations. The work involves hard manual work. Consequently he production is low and people are forced to take up odd jobs for their survival.Changes in climatic conditions affect their farming and living conditions adversely. The green cover in mountains balances the environment and controls the climate in the whole country. The natural resources are depleting; fuel wood is sparingly available now for cooking and heating. It is high time that people think of alternative sources of energy. The project is organized by RUCHI in collaboration with Him Urja of state government and local village groups. The aim of the project is to try out and promote renewable sources of energy. In the first phase, we would like to establish demonstration units at RUCHI and make use of idle solar energy resource. There is ample sun light round the year except for few rainy days during monsoon and winter. We propose to make RUCHI complex totally a solar energy complex in due course. Therefore, we propose to do following under the project during 2019: 1. Establish solar panels for lighting on roofs and roadside and 2. Establish solar water heaters post solar lighting. After successful demonstration of solar energy at RUCHI we propose to promote the technology to rural communities where conventional electricity power is getting unaffordable. The project is expected to have better informed community on environmental concerns and have a greener environment with decreased carbon emission. Volunteers will undertake following activities (1. is the main, changed according to weather):1. Assisting the work for the solar energy (e.g., Identify ideal site on roadside for putting up solar lights, install solar panels on roofs and streets, monitor power consumption and production patterns).2. Planting fast growing trees with soil binding capabilities across the roadside and in RUCHI campus. The area is prone to land slide and soil erosions.3. Tending to fruit trees (Guava, Mango and Amla with onion and ginger) in RUCHI farm. The work may relate to mulching, removing weeds, pruning and preparing organic compost.

Accomodation and food

Volunteers will stay in RUCHI campus and share accommodation with another volunteer of the same sex. Cooked food will be served in the community kitchen. All meals will be Indian vegetarian.
