Background: Covid-19 has challenged
our usual way of doing business and our
dependency on digital technology is all time
high. Having a digital footprint is no more a
desire but a necessity for organizations. We
have witnessed how people and
organizations have used social media as a
strong platform for awareness, networking,
shopping, education, etc.
We aim to introduce and empower children
on digital media in a few select NFE centres.
Covid pandemic had increased demand of
smart phones for a living and online classes
for children. However, due to lack of
knowledge these phones are still
underutilized. We expect volunteers to
educate children and parents on use of
these digital devices to optimize their
Work: We advise volunteers 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 help improve on the
pronunciation, grammar and digital
education of kids along with other lessons.
Volunteers can impart information and
educate children on various issues like:
 New normal way of life post COVID

 Basic reading, writing and speaking
English lessons.
 Personality development,
communication skills, creative
 Child rights, protection policy, Good
touch, Bad touch, Gender equality,
Respecting women, active
citizenship etc.
 Teenage life, adulthood, puberty,
drug abuse, Violence, student life
career guidance.
 Digital education and responsible
use of gadgets.
Accommodation: Basic, simple, safe &
clean accommodation will be provided
either at host family or RUCHI campus on
sharing basis (Twin or triple) with common
toilets and bath.
Food: Food offered will be simple
authentic Indian vegetarian and freshly
cooked. Three meals a day will be served.
Assistance while cooking is desired and self
cooking can be organized by volunteers.

PARTICIPATION FEE: The participation fees are as follows:
Per month - Euro 400/- (Fee has to be paid in advance. The fee is worked out on
monthly basis and not daily or weekly basis and hence it remains same even if one leaves the
project a day or week earlier)
The participants are required to pay the fee in cash on the first day of their arrival at site, Bank transfer
service & transferwise details available upon request. The contribution covers all basic expenses, e.g.
accommodation, gas, water, electricity, food, staff salaries and for materials used in projects/activities.
Alcoholic drinks are not included. Alcohol drinking and smoking is not encouraged in public and villages.
Project related travel expenses shall be reimbursed to volunteer each month with a maximum cap of
rupees 800. Leisure travel and personal expenses during free time are not covered in participation fee.
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.
 Project setup costs. (material and logistics cost)
 Running the camp. (wages of professional like mason, carpenter, plumber etc and training local
youth supported by us.)
 Office running/admin expenses. (Internet, photocopy, stationary, electricity, phone, salaries,
office equipments, tools and rent etc.)

All volunteers are required to get Indian visa to enter the country. As per the new regulations an
