Baddi is an industrial area. Economically poor people migrated to the area in search of jobs and established their temporary settlements. These settlements are devoid of even basic amenities and hence called aeurooeslumsaeuro. Industries and increased human population is pressurizing the already depleting natural resources and causing a serious environmental, health and amp; sanitation problem. During leisure time, the volunteers can visit the famous Rock Garden in Chandigarh, Pinjore Garden, Shimla and Kasauli Hills.
Volunteers with a background or experience in environmental education are preferred.
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.
