At RUCHI we want to use art as a powerful tool to impart knowledge, increase awareness and target social issue along with expressing ourselves creatively. After running this camp for 7 years we have assisted in facelifting more than 10 schools across villages. We also work with rural women artisans where we want to add value to their product using arts.
