Baddi area of Solan district, Himachal Pradesh state. This mountainous state is also known as the land of gods. The location is 65 kms from Chandigarh city 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.
Self organized city tours and excursions. Old Sikh and Hindu temples in the near vicinity can be visited. Nearby Kasauli town, a hill station, is a major
tourist attraction. A visit to Shimla, the state capital, will offer an opportunity to see high Himalayan Mountains and British architecture.
RUCHI believes ”community development” cannot be achieved until women in our society are empowered and are respected within our society. Though a lot has been written about women and their contribution towards society but its a pity that their efforts are still monetarily not accounted in our national GDP. A women plays many roles within Indian society, a daughter, a wife, a mother, a home maker and even labourer to earn wages if need arises. Surprisingly after supporting her family in various ways she is mostly not consulted and involved in household decision making.
RUCHI always recognised women’s efforts and believes that, educating a women educates whole family & therefore keeping that in mind RUCHI has initiated voluntary project facilitating cultural exposure and assisting women to overcome these odds.
