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 are:

  • Waste Force: With the help of its interns and students RUCHI continues to educate slum dwellers, school students and rural communities about waste generation, advantages of recycling and proper disposal. Currently there are 6 schools working with RUCHI towards recycling and proper waste management.
  • 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 ₹5,000 as interest free loan for any small economic activity.
