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, educating a women
educates whole family & therefore 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
individual women and groups from rural
communities we work with by
