Background: In the interior rural areas,
education of children in private schools is
generally unavailable and also unaffordable
by local people. Consequently, they send
their children to government schools.
However, the attitudes of teachers there is
a little indifferent and not very pro-active.
To meet people’s demand for better
education some committed teachers have
started less expensive private schools in
rural areas. The school enrolls children from
economically poor families from the rural
We started this project with aim to
introduce the concept of NFE in these
schools. With assistance of volunteers we
are working with 7 institutes at present and
we swish to restart our cooperation as they
open post pandemic. The focus of education
here is on non-formal social aspects.
Work: With volunteers we want to
introduce and promote teaching which
promotes thinking and creativity among kids
rather than stereotype learning. The idea is
to make education interesting and fruitful to
children in age group 6-15 in order for them
to have a better future. The school wants
the volunteers to assist teachers and

Project related travel expenses shall be reimbursed to volunteer each month with a maximum cap of

Why the extra fee?
RUCHI, like other NGO’s in India, is not financially supported by government to host projects related to
IVS. Hence all projects are self funded with a participation fee. Given the remote location and various
complexities we have tried our best to make it as affordable as possible for volunteers. Being a non-profit
organization we emphasize on transparency, below is how we spend collected participation fee.
 Food, accommodation and logistics of volunteer during workcamp.

youth supported by us.)
