Background: This is a mountainous area where people are purely dependent on agriculture for a living. However, due to shortage of water and small terraces on sloppy land the agriculture is unsustainable and farm production is not enough to cover three meals a day for a family round the year.
RUCHI campus is spread over an area of 3 hectares and has good fertile soil. Kitchen gardens need to be promoted to grow vegetables for consumption by staff and volunteers. In due course we would like them to serve as demonstration centre for farmers.

Work: This is a mountain area where people are purely dependent on agriculture for a living. However, due to shortage of water and small terraces on sloppy land the agriculture is unsustainable and farm production is not enough to cover three meals a day for a family round the year. People realise the ill effects of using chemicals on farms but still use them because of lack of education.
Both the volunteers will be involved in developing agriculture fields and grow herbs and vegetables organic way. They will work on raising awareness on various agricultural practices and set up demonstration units for farmers. In extra time, they can create awareness on environmental issues like Global warming, climate change, depletion of natural resources and wherever possible in seeking solutions as well.

Accommodation: This will be basic, simple and shared with common toilets. They will be staying in RUCHI complex accommodation with basic amenities. We shall provide mattresses but the volunteers are required to bring their own
bed sheets, sleeping bags and personal toiletries. 

Food: 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.

a. For one/first month stay - Euro 360
b. For each additional month - Euro 320
The participants are required to pay the fee in cash on the first day of their arrival at site, Bank transfer service available upon request. The contribution covers all basic expenses, e.g. accommodation, gas, water, electricity, food, staff salaries and for materials used in projects/activities. Alcoholic drinks are not included. Alcohol drinking and smoking is not encouraged in public and villages.

Project related travel expenses shall be reimbursed to volunteer each month with a maximum cap of rupees 500. Leisure travel and personal expenses during free time are not covered in participation fee.

Why the extra fee?
RUCHI with other NGO’s in India is not financially supported by government to host projects related to IVS. Hence all projects are self funded with a participation fee. Given the remote location and various  complexities we have tried our best to make it as affordable as possible for volunteers. Being a non-profit organization we emphasize on transparency, below is how we spend collected participation fee.
 Food, accommodation and logistics of volunteer during workcamp.
 Project setup costs. (material and logistics cost)
 Running the camp. (wages of professional like mason, carpenter, plumber etc and training local youth supported by us.)
 Office running/admin expenses. (Internet, photocopy, stationary, electricity, phone, salaries, office equipments, tools and rent etc.)
 Supporting small community project.
 International travel costs to annual global conferences and membership fee for networking.

All volunteers are required to get Indian visa to enter the country. As per the new regulations an employment visa is required for their placement with Indian NGOs. For details kindly refer to RUCHI will be happy to assist you with required documents.
