This work camp in India, in Dharamshala, is a project promoted by RUCHI in collaboration with l’Associazione di Promozione Sociale Joint. RUCHI (Rural Center for Human Interests) is an organization that develops the local communities through promoting international volunteering and intercultural exchange. Ruchi was created in the 1983 in the district of Solan and it always dedicated its efforts to the needs of the remote communities. Extreme poverty, the development of basic infrastructures, access to better education for youngsters are some of the main topics, Ruchi works on. Focusing on people, especially young ones, leads to the development of the entire local community.
Through this work camp the volunteers will be able to live with the local Tibetan culture, they will study the story of Tibet and how the Tibetani people had to be exiled to the land they are living now. The intercultural learning about life and environmental issues will broaden the horizon of the volunteers. The volunteers can also work in the local school, creating opportunities for the children, playing with them and to take part in the maintenance of the touristic zone. The volunteers that will come before 19 February can assist in the Tibetan New Year celebrations.

- Wanting to learn the Tibetan history,
