Arbeit

As a volunteer, you would visit local councils & institutes to create awareness through various media on precautions, learning and good practices we had to adopt in our behavior during the 2 years of pandemic in order to avoid any such future disaster. Corona cannot be eradicated completely and hence people have to learn to manage and live with it. We may undertake some of the topics that may include:
• Managing stress, fatigue and depression
• New economic avenues post pandemic
• Dispel the myths of corona scare,
• Imbibe correct knowledge & become aware,
• Follow cough etiquettes, hand hygiene & personal care,
• Spread a word of precaution through your share.

Time permitting, volunteers may also be involved in other humanitarian works giving exposure for their personal development.

We have identified 10 formal and informal communities which the volunteers will visit and educate people.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Volunteers will stay at RUCHI campus on twin/triple sharing basis. Bed and beddings are provided. Simple basic amenities will be available, bringing personal sleeping bag is desirable. Asian squat type toilet & English WC with hot and cold showers are available. Our cook will serve authentic Indian vegetarian meals.

Lage und Freizeit

10 villages around Bandh-Baddi. Bandh village is 30 km from Kalka and 60 km from Chandigarh. Bandh village is small and hilly located in interior mountainous area and the volunteers will have a unique opportunity to live with nature in a peaceful environment. Baddi is the largest industrial area of the state and has 7 major slums for industrial workers and rag pickers.

Self organized city tours and excursions. Old Sikh and Hindu temples in the near vicinity can be visited. Nearby Chandigarh city with internationally known Rock Garden is a tourist attraction. A visit to Shimla will offer an opportunity to see high Himalayan Mountains.

The recent pandemic of Covid-19 has completely changed behaviour and perceptions of people. Whereas a segment of community takes all safety precautions the other segment ignores them completely and thinks they are beyond the reach of disease due to their strong immunity and daily wage necessity.

Spending an increasing amount of time indoors has driven us to value relationships with family and friends fostering a better sense of wellbeing.

This first of its kind pandemic through various economic, social and political avenues, will affect global developmental objectives at a much broader scale. The impacts will be observed more prominently in the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Arbeit

Working closely with local communities we have mobilized women self help groups in villages. Through these groups we have nurtured and supported women entrepreneurship initiatives to economically support their families. We also work with teenage girls in public schools where we assist in development of their soft skills.

The volunteer is expected to better understand the role a typical woman has in our society and join them in their economic activity. Volunteers are expected to be creative and skillful so they can implement need based workshop for girls about adolescence education, personality development, career counseling etc. They will also be attending meetings of Self-help Groups (SHGs) and interact with women to better understand their plight and assist them to be economically independent.
Additional activities will include learning of various developmental issues and solutions. They will visit various humanitarian projects and interact with the villagers.

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, still a lot needs to be done to help them achieve the desired position within social perspective in our community. Keeping that in mind RUCHI has initiated voluntary project facilitating cultural exposure and assisting women to overcome these odds.

This projects aims to empower women and girls of all ages by helping them to gain confidence, recognize and demand their rights and most importantly start being an earning member of family.

We strongly believe that every child has a right to education and with this initiative we want to strengthen basic learning skills for children of age 4 to 18 years from rural institutes by introducing them and teachers to the non-formal education methodology which uses tools like creative art, drawing, painting, games, paper art (origami), charts, music, singing, dancing, audio/video aid and other innovative activity based methods to enhance the understanding of kids towards the topic by encouraging creative thinking rather than just text book learning.

The recent pandemic introduced us all to digital classes along with work from home culture which brought into lime light the importance of digital education and the lack of it at institutional level. It was highly difficult and emotionally challenging for the countryside families to adapt to this new requirement due to economic compulsions, lower literacy level, lack of IT skills and no smart devices. However, it is good that people are prepared to acquire these skills.

At present we work with 7 educational institutes (private and public) along with a day care learning centre at nearby slum which has more than 70 kids visiting it daily.

Anforderungen

Interest in sharing knowledge, discussing issues and open to understanding and learning new ideas.

We strongly believe that every child has a right to education and with this initiative we want to strengthen basic learning skills for children of age 4 to 18 years from rural institutes by introducing them and teachers to the non-formal education methodology which uses tools like creative art, drawing, painting, games, paper art (origami), charts, music, singing, dancing, audio/video aid and other innovative activity based methods to enhance the understanding of kids towards the topic by encouraging creative thinking rather than just text book learning.

The recent pandemic introduced us all to digital classes along with work from home culture which brought into lime light the importance of digital education and the lack of it at institutional level. It was highly difficult and emotionally challenging for the countryside families to adapt to this new requirement due to economic compulsions, lower literacy level, lack of IT skills and no smart devices. However, it is good that people are prepared to acquire these skills.

At present we work with 7 educational institutes (private and public) along with a day care learning centre at nearby slum which has more than 70 kids visiting it daily.

Anforderungen

Interest in sharing knowledge, discussing issues and open to understanding and learning new ideas.

Working closely with local communities we have mobilized women self help groups in villages. Through these groups we have nurtured and supported women entrepreneurship initiatives to economically support their families. We also work with teenage girls in public schools where we assist in development of their soft skills.

The volunteer is expected to better understand the role a typical woman has in our society and join them in their economic activity. Volunteers are expected to be creative and skillful so they can implement need based workshop for girls about adolescence education, personality development, career counseling etc. They will also be attending meetings of Self-help Groups (SHGs) and interact with women to better understand their plight and assist them to be economically independent.

Additional activities will include learning of various developmental issues and solutions. They will visit various humanitarian projects and interact with the villagers.
