Volunteers will observe flora, fauna and biodiversity in this forest area and how the nature plays an important role in influencing the lives of local people.

Depending on the weather, volunteers would plant new trees and also nurture the already planted ones. Physical work would include soil working, composting, clearing weeds and bushes, preparing holes for future plantation. Since environmental education and protection is the focus of the camp they will be expected to create awareness on issues like global warming, climate change, Carbon emission, sustainable lifestyle etc.

Besides tree plantation, volunteers will be given an exposure of other humanitarian projects, meeting with women groups, physical activity in RUCHI campus and work in communities or slums.

Volunteers will live in the RUCHI campus. All minimum basic amenities will be available with library facilities. Vegetarian food will be served. A cook will be there but volunteers are expected to help him and occasionally cook their own meals and self-management is required. Sleeping bags are not necessary but required for personal hygiene.

Ruchi campus which is located near Bandh village. It is 30 km from Kalka town and 60 km from Chandigarh city. The area offers a unique opportunity to live with nature in a peaceful environment.

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.


Interest in environment and climate change. Physical fitness, Flexibility and High level of motivation.

With this project we aim to do our bit to reverse climate change and preserve biodiversity of our surrounding through education and actions. As July-September are rainy months and an ideal time to plant trees therefore we annually organize environmental actions to bring more waste land under use by planting trees, Overtime we have assisted in planting more than 10,000 trees in last 5 years. Along with plantation we also educate local community about carbon emission and environmentally sustainable actions which we could apply.
