We are all volunteers, including the directors, staff and our colleagues, so the money we receive goes towards our charitable activities, not salaries.
What motivates us? We know and love the hillside and the people who live there, and want to do something to improve their lives. It's as simple as that. We are providing grassroots level education programs to local people in Uttarakhand where all are welcome without any caste, color or creed.
What We Need
Child education, women empowerment, digital marketing, help to staff in the office, and in farming fields.
Most, but not all, of our volunteers serve as classroom teachers. The greatest need is for teachers of English as a foreign language (TEFL). If you don't have any experience in this field, don't worry. You can share your any skill with our children.
Other subjects needing assistance from our volunteers include Maths, Science and IT.
In addition to teachers, we are looking for medical staff: doctors, dentists and nurses for a clinic in the western region of Uttrakhand.

Most of the families in India are living at subsistence level. Parents need the labour of their children, particularly the girls, to help the family feed itself. This means that they cannot always afford to release their children to attend school or college.
Even if the child can go to school, the quality of education is often very poor. Problems include untrained and unmotivated teachers, unaffordable books and uniforms, crowded classrooms (and often different class levels have to share the same classroom). Of those children that do manage, against the odds, to get through their schooling, very few indeed are able to go on to higher education.
The consequence of this is that many of these children do not get the education they need in order to achieve their full earning or social potential and thus remain trapped in the impoverished existence they are born into. This is the reason for Mana Rishikesh.
The aim of ManaRishikesh is to help selected village schools in Uttarakhand raise the standards of education that they can provide to the children of their communities, and to give the poorest children a chance to go to school and college.In so doing, we hope in the longer term to have an impact not only on their own living standards, but also on those of their extended families and of the wider communities they come
