Rural Development through People Centered Sustainable Action
  • Rural Center for Human Interests (RUCHI) laid its foundation on the philosophy - 'people's power'. They are a team spirited organization who believe that only people can pull each other out of adverse situations.
  • RUCHI went from being a social enterprise to a socio-technical organization in 1990 after heading rooftop water harvesting.
