Keeping in view the need, easy accessibility and convenience of rural communities, RUCHI had created its base in a small rural village. Because of its location, it is hard to get English speaking volunteers/youth who could assist the IVS programme. THE MINIMUM DURATION OF THIS PROJECT IS ONE MONTH. You can choose when you start and leave the project.



RUCHI is a non-profit organisation committed to community development since 1983. RUCHI was established keeping in mind the problems and restrictions that a remote community faces on day to day basis. These could be due to poverty, lack of knowledge, poor infrastructure or at times difficult terrain. As a result RUCHI has always implemented its project with people centered approach and gave priority to community development. With 36 years in this field, RUCHI has accumulated extensive knowledge in community development with project area ranging from semi-urban background to extremely remote communities requiring two days of walk certain time of the year. Over time RUCHI has also developed and successfully implemented low cost technologies. We are now acting as a resource organization for Indian Government and other NGO’s pursuing community development.


2 volunteers are required as a part of organizational capacity building. RUCHI is located in a remote village where part time working is not practiced. Committed skilled and specialized people are hard to get in this remote rural area. The volunteers are required for general administration of organization and be involved with International Voluntary Service projects. He/She will be required to promote volunteers projects, reply mails and help administer projects during the season. If the need be, they will also lead a short term workcamp as a Team Leader. In free time, he will be required to go to villages also along with other team members and learn and contribute.
