Rural Roots is a project run by Culture Roots Foundation. This project is a mixture of cultural exchange program within volunteers, education workshop for rural & underprivileged kids and a medical camp for the locals.
The Project layout :
Volunteers including educators, artists & doctors will go the rural areas of Uttarakhand for 7-10 days of workshop. The educators will teach the essential topics to local underprivileged kids, the artists will teach the basics of their art with some life skills through their art forms & the doctors will do general health check-up of the locals and will also guide the local ladies with their menstrual health awareness.
Why do we need funds (Major expenses) :
1. Travel :
Taking 8-10 Volunteers in the rural ares of Uttarakhand for 7-10 days is the major expense of this workshop. Considering the fact that Uttarakhand is an Himalayan state of India with steep roads. This leads to the consumption of more fuel than usual to reach to the destination.
2. Accommodation :
We will be renting out tents, sleeping bags and other camping essentials for the stay of our volunteers.
3. Donation Materials :
We will be donating stationaries, clothes, sanitary napkins, basic medical supplies to the local authorities for their proper distribution among the locals.
So far our friends & well-wishers have been kind enough to support us with our cause. Through this fundraising program we expect to reach out globally to the people who are willing to help in the sector of education & health in rural India.
