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