RUCHI NGO. It has been in operation since 1983 in the hilly area of Himachal Pradesh state with a commitment to ameliorate socio-economic condition of people.
With Waste Force we aim to create awareness among local community and change their behavior where individuals start to think and deal with their waste in a more responsible way.
Under this campaign at present our focus is to discourage people from burning waste specially “plastic waste” which is widely practiced and also accepted by everyone. Working closely with schools, communities and slum dwellers volunteers are expected to take following tasks:
• Create awareness on importance of waste segregation and disposal at individual and community level.
• Organising community cleanup campaigns.
• Exploring ideas to reuse non biodegradable waste. (To reduce burning)
• Identify recycling agents and businesses nearby.
• Connecting communities and recycling businesses.
• Organising workshop on recycling aiming to generate entrepreneurship for youth.

This mountainous state is also known as the land of gods. The location is 65 kms from the city of Chandigarh and 80 kms from the state capital of Shimla. The communities are dependent on agriculture primarily for survival. However, due to terraced farming, shortage of water, low educational standards and small land holdings the people just get enough from their farms for survival.
India, being one of the fastest emerging economy in the world is facing multitude problems due to rapid urbanization. Lack of waste management is one of them. It is sad to say that there is no solution in near sight as majority of our collected waste from cities is used for landfill. Things become worst in rural area where there is no waste system offered by government and therefore people are left to deal with it at their own. As a result people do what is most convenient to them: throwing it on road, streams, forest or even worst burn it.
Thanks to this ignorant behaviour of people our streams and fresh water sources are getting contaminated and choked, our landscape is being filled with plastics and people are slowly developing respiratory diseases.
During October 2017, RUCHI embarked on an innovative project called Waste Force with the help of 2 Italian interns without funds from any source. The project focuses on 3 dimensions: 1) Education, 2) Action and 3) Recycling workshops.
