NGO Profile :
Rural Centre for Human Interests (RUCHI) has emphasised on community development through social and economic progress and minimal dependence on others. They undertake various development programs and work with 100 families in the mountainous terrain of Sirmour and Solan districts.

Their Head Office is situated in a complex called the Technology Resource Centre (TRC) which was set up in support with Council for Advancement of Peoples Action and Rural Development Technology (CAPART), an initiative of the Ministry of Rural Development.

Some of their activities in 2014-15 were:

  • Women in Agriculture: A workshop on Women in Agriculture was held at Bandh on 10th June 2014. It was conducted by RUCHI in collaboration with YFA Hyderabad and Akhil Bhartiya Mahila Kisan Mahasangha in order to sensitise women and media on the plight of women farmers and to advocate for their recognition and rights as “farmers”. 126 women of Dharampur and Baddi tehsil participated in the workshop.
  • Integrated Development of Water, Health and Agriculture: The activity facilitates community members in increasing their productivity and economic status. In the short and medium term, the activity will improve sanitation and drinking water facilities for all communities in Baddi. The surrounding villages will be given support to implement water conservation techniques which will positively impact the water table and at the same time increase water available for irrigation. This along with training and resources for crop diversification will increase the productivity and yield from the land.
  • Farmers Training Camp: In collaboration with the Agriculture Office, three farmer training camps were held in villages of Kaindol, Tujhar and Mali. Farmers were provided with information to help them with their farm production. Seeds of peas, spinach, coriander, etc, and small tools were also distributed to the participating farmers.
  • Empowering Women: Five new Self Help Groups (SHGs) were organised by RUCHI under a watershed development scheme sponsored by Dharampur Development Block. Under the scheme, SHG members are eligible to apply and get Rs5,000 as interest free loan for any small economic activity.
