Placement: Placement is offered for 3-5 months.

Background:
RUCHI’s primary focus has been on rural
community development and it strongly
believes to achieve this it has to work &
live with rural communities. Our base is
located at a small rural village keeping in
mind convenience and accessibility of local
community.
Working with a small team of social
scientists some extra hands are always
welcome between May and October each
year to provide assistance to our IVS
program and further promote it. Each year
at RUCHI we organize nearly 25 Short term
workcamps and have nearly 10 ongoing
initiatives for Long tern volunteers and
Interns to participate in where we host
nearly 100-160 national and international
youth per annum.
Work: Volunteers will be working closely
with IVS coordinator, team leaders and
other camp volunteers by providing
assistance to ensure the quality of
workcamp and project objectives are being
reached. A committed volunteer with IT &
web development, photography and video
making skills will be highly desired.
Few tasks assigned for this role are:
 Assist in general administrative work
related to incoming volunteers.
 Help administer and coordinate
weekly plan during workcamp.

 Assist camp leaders during daily
evaluation with volunteers.
 Assist in promoting our IVS projects
to recruit more volunteers (Website
development & promotion, social
media promotion etc).
 Assist in promoting partners
organisation projects to recruit
Indian volunteers.
 Visiting camp and project sites
during camps for guidance.

clean accommodation will be provided at
RUCHI campus on sharing basis (Twin or
triple) with common toilets and bath.

authentic Indian vegetarian and freshly

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.)
 Supporting small community project.
 International travel costs to annual global conferences and membership fee for networking.

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