Background: RUCHI believes ”community development” cannot be achieved until women in our society are empowered and are respected within our society. Though a lot has been written about women and their contribution towards society but its a pity that their efforts are still monetarily not accounted in our national GDP. A women plays many roles within Indian society; a daughter, a wife, a mother, a home maker and even labourer to earn wages if need arises. Surprisingly after supporting her family in various ways she is mostly not consulted and involved in household decision making. 

RUCHI always recognised women’s efforts and believes that, still a lot needs to be done to help them achieve the desired position within social perspective in our community. Keeping that in mind RUCHI has initiated voluntary project facilitating cultural exposure and assisting women to overcome these odds.

Work:   This projects aims to empower women by helping them to gain confidence, demand their rights and most importantly start being an earning member of family.

Based in rural environment volunteers will be familiarised with local culture. They will be offered  choice to live with host families during their stay to better understand the role a typical women has in our society and then design a income generation plan for group or individual member.
