RUCHI collaborates with CBO and other educational institutions in executing IVS and humanitarian projects.
The volunteers will be involved in teaching English to the children in the age group 6-11 in a small village based school. The school wants the volunteers to add value to the teaching and improve on the pronunciation and grammar. The idea is to make education interesting and fruitful to them and prepare and encourage them to improve on their English for a better future.During free time, volunteers involvement in health and sanitation education in the same area will be appreciated. They can work with youth workers and community leaders to develop health educational activities for their well being.
This will be simple and shared in the school/village with common toilets. Volunteers are advised to bring their own bed sheet and sleeping bags for hygienic reasons. Food offered will be simple authentic Indian vegetarian and freshly cooked. Three meals a day will be served. Assistance while cooking is desired of volunteers. Volunteers are free to cook meals of their country choice on every Sunday.
In the interior rural areas, education of children in expensive private schools is unaffordable by local communities. Consequently, they send their children to government schools. However, the attitudes of teachers there is a little indifferent and not very pro-active. To meet peopleaeuros demand for better education some committed teachers have started less expensive private schools in rural areas. Baddi slums and Bogdhar village have one such school in each community. The school enrolls children from economically poor families from the slums or rural areas. The focus of education here is on social aspects. During leisure time, the volunteers may like to visit Chandigarh for its Rock Garden, Shimla town (once the summer capital of British Army) or Renuka Lake. Trekkers can decide to climb the nearby Churdhar peak (12,400 ft).
interest in introducing creativity in education and develop children as good human beings
Presently, RUCHI head office is located in a new complex called the Technology Resource Centre (TRC). The office a centre of technology transfer came into force, in the year 1994 as an extension program of CAPART, of the Ministry of Rural Development. The objective is to promote, develop and modify the rural technologies. Situated in the hills of Solan district in Bandh village, this centre has been the hub of all activities.
RUCHI has focused through the years on promoting sustainable anthropocentric development through empowerment â€“ by providing assistance and technical support to the underprivileged, showing them the way to minimize dependence and thus attain a better life â€“ rather than just through charity. RUCHIâ€™s founders felt there was a need for a committed workforce to initiate the process of development at the grassroots level, encouraging individual and community participation in the process.
