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. The state is also known as the land of gods.
Volunteers under this project will be based in rural setting and involved in need based protection and conservation activities including creating awareness regarding environmental importance of fresh water. The saying ïf there is going to be a Third World War, it will be on water” goes well for this area too. Even though the area gets ample rainfall there is a perpetual shortage of water in dry months. The problem is more of management and not availability. Every drop of water needs to be conserved. Volunteers also expected to develop methodology to protect and replenish these fresh water sources.
Working closely with local community members following tasks shall be undertaken by volunteers.
• Mapping all fresh water bodies within project area.
• Evaluating their present conditions: measuring flow rate, collecting water samples for testing.
• Developing and implementing a recharge plan using traditional methods and using local resources.
• Organising educational campaigns encouraging community participation in the process and cleaning up work.
• Creating and executing protection plan for springs.
