My name is Alice Metcalf and I have visited R.O.S.E for one week as part of a 3 month tour around Asia with my boyfriend, Harry. Last year I graduated with an MA in Global Urban Justice and I have been doing research for a charity in London since then. I found R.O.S.E on the internet and was keen to put some of my skills into practice on the field whilst learning about Hindi culture in rural India.
On arrival we were both blown away by the scenery and the fresh air! Kanda is an absolutely stunning place – I could never get bored of these views.
My boyfriend is a digital marketing executive so our primary function here has been developing marketing tools and networking with various universities and volunteering coordination organizations. I think that we have made good progress in just one week, but it’s important that someone follows up the leads that we have started. We have also spent some time identifying potential donors who are interested in funding agricultural programs in rural India. Again, it is important that our work is followed up on to ensure that the time we have spent on this has been worthwhile for R.O.S.E. I genuinely believe that Jeevan’s dream of expanding his goat breeding program will be realized – and he deserves every success!
The accommodation is fantastic – we have both been very happy in our room. My only suggestion on how to improve guests’ stay here is to perhaps give them more of an opportunity to get involved in day-to-day life here with the family. We have asked the family if they would like help with any job a number of times, but our offer has rarely been taken up, leaving us feeling pretty guilty when so much hard work is going on around us. That said, today we were taken down to the fields and shown how the land is prepared for a new season of rice growing which was fascinating and excellent fun.
Jeevan has been a fantastic host,

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.
