RC-15/21 Tibetan Culture & Social Dev Dharamshala & Solan SOC/CUL 10 Vols. 30.08.21 – 11.09.21

Background: Through this project we aim to provide
volunteers with an enriching (rural & urban) experience
where they would participate in our ongoing rural
community development initiatives aimed at upliftment
of marginalized people and later move to Mcloedganj,
Dharamshala where Tibetan Government in exile has its
head quarters. Volunteers here would get chance to
increase their understanding about Tibetan Culture,
their movement and their ongoing struggle to keep their
identity alive.
Location & Leisure time: (1st week) RUCHI Campus at
village, Bandh of Solan district and (2nd week) in the
town of Mcloedganj in Dharamshala, a tourist hub.
The volunteers will have opportunity to visit the seat of
spiritual leader, the Dalia Lama and other historical
Hindu temples. Opportunities will be there for short
and long treks in the mountains. After the camp, if they
like, volunteers may visit Golden Temple in Amritsar,
Punjab. In the first week, Nearby Kasauli town is a
major attraction. A visit to Shimla will offer an
opportunity to see high Himalayan Mountains and
British architecture.
Work: During 1st week volunteers would join us in our
headquarter which is based at a rural location where
they have opportunity to live & experience a typical
mountain village culture, their lifestyle and during

process join our ongoing initiatives like NFE, women
empowerment, NRM (Protection of fresh water
sources), organic farming etc.
During 2nd week the group would move to Mcloedganj in
Dharamshala which is a touristic town and also
Secretariat of Tibetan Government in exile. Over here
they would visit Tibetan, monasteries, museum, schools
and join language classes with Tibetan people. There is a
likelihood that we may take up some cleanliness work or
some other activity.
Accommodation and Food: Volunteers will live in shared
accommodation in both places. The minimum basic
amenities will be available. Vegetarian food will be

served but in the town you will have access to non-
vegetarian meals as well. A cook will be there but

volunteers are expected to help him and occasionally
cook their own meals and self-management is required.
Sleeping bags are not necessary but required for
personal hygiene and additional comfort.
Requirements: Interest in understanding different life
styles and issues with a sharing and learning ability, High
motivation & open mindedness is a must.
