Background: 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.   

Work: 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. Following activities shall be undertaken by Volunteers:

  1. Developing a material and awareness campaign on WASH education.
  2. Implementing the campaign in community.
  1. Hosting workshop at local schools creating youth awareness on WASH. 

 

Accommodation:  This will be simple and shared accommodation. All volunteers 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.
