RUCHI is a not-for-profit organisation committed to community development since 1983.


Sanitation is a big problem in rural as well as urban slums in this mountainous area where there is no effective disposal system in practice. This affects their health and production capacity. The volunteers will help to educate and create awareness involving youth and rural people on water, sanitation, hygiene and health standards(WASH). The volunteers will have to be innovative so that they can design and use their own tools in consultation with RUCHI team with regard to their appropriateness and local needs. This project will help Volunteers to work with villagers to initiate waste management through our Waste Force Campaign. Volunteers will be part of a cleanliness drive where they will visit schools and villages to conduct a cleanliness campaign. During this drive, volunteers can inform students, youth, women and villagers about the importance of segregation of waste, reducing use of plastic and proper disposal of waste. Volunteers can use creative mediums like charts, slogans, posters, banners, t-shirts, quotes, videos, films, photographs and discussions to educate villagers about different methods of waste management.

Emplacement & Temps libre

The slums around Baddi township have influenced sanitary conditions in the communities. In rural India open defecation is still prevalent. Even though the State Government has made it mandatory to build private toilets, the people are indifferent and unaware of the demerits and adverse impact on their health. Garbage disposal is another serious problem and adversely impacts environment and their health. A movement through education and campaigning on WASH needs to be built up. The project area will be 10 mountain villages around RUCHI office in Solan district, northern India.Leisure time opportunities offer visit to Rock Garden of international fame in Chandigarh and Shimla Hills.


Volunteers with interest in sanitation and waste disposal are welcome.
