The goal of R.O.S.E. NGO to improve the health, Education and quality of life of the rural poor in this region while maintaining cultural integrity and ecological balance
The organization works at grassroots level, appealing to the community to become active participants in developing a better life for themselves. It is the goal of R.O.S.E. NGO to improve the health, Education and quality of life of the rural poor in this region while maintaining cultural integrity and ecological balance. This goal is realized through a programme which brings tourist volunteers to Kanda to live with the Verma family, experience local Kumaoni culture and assist financially (administration fee, rent & optional donation) and manually, in the rural development projects of R.O.S.E.
Mr. Verma has created an exceptional example of responsible rural tourism that greatly benefits the community and the visitors through genuine, respectful cultural interactions. Mr. Verma’s family has lived in the Kanda region for generations. Therefore he has a deep understanding of the social, cultural and environmental issues faced by the local population. Most importantly, he recognizes that these three aspects are interdependent and integral parts of a fully sustainable system of living and all projects are approached with this in mind. Some examples of previous projects of R.O.S.E. include the installation of twin-tank latrines, construction of earthquake-proof homes, community educational programmes on sanitation and employment generation for the rural unemployed.
One aspect of the volunteer work is with the 15-20 children at nursery and 1st grade level who need English, art, yoga, nutrition, and computer education.
Beyond this, we need help fundraising, organic farming, house keeping and more.
We have home stay accommodation for Rs. 9,900 for two weeks which includes room + breakfast, lunch, dinner and tea.
Administration fee of Rs. 2,000 and a project fee of Rs. 8,000
