  • Beschreibung


    We are one of the oldest Community based organisations working in the rural Kumaon region in the hill district of Almora, Uttarakhand. Our focus is on promoting organic agriculture, water harvesting, providing technological innovation to mountain farmers, skill building them to create value added food products and support them with marketing.

    We have small business units that are run by local community members. Our village bakery makes products such as buns, muffins, cookies etc. for local consumers. We have a women- run organic products manufacturing facility that makes certified organic food products such as Pickles, Jams, Pastes, Concentrates, Flours etc. Our community women team members also run a seed bank that stores and promotes traditional open pollinated mountain seed varieties.

    We are currently working on a rural homestay project whereby we are renovating an old traditional mountain house. The structure is located in the Pine forests and is a pretty site to observe Himalayan wildlife. Further, a walk up to the nearby villages and mountain tops give you a wide view of the Kumaon and Garhwal Himalayan mountain range!

    Workawayers can get an opportunity to volunteer in the community based initiatives at the grassroot level in the Himalayas. They will get to experience the customs and practices of the Kumaon mountain region, lifestyle, food, rituals and the simplicity of the Himalayan villages. Travellers with an experience of social work and community development will have a great opportunity to experience and understand community development with the Himalayan communities. If you have a skill which you think will be of great help to us, do let us know!

    Our campus is surrounded with mountains, a river and Pine forests with a plethora of Himalayan flora and wildlife. During Spring, the forests bloom with Rhododendron and Mehal flowers and winters are perfect for bright sunshine. There are plenty of natural jungle hikes surrounding the campus. You can further explore the nearby hill stations of Almora and Ranikhet and discover the Kumaoni and British cultural and architectural heritage of the region.

    You also get to experience the slowness of the Himalayas, the absolute beauty of the environment, people and a space with the comforts of living.

    We are located in the hill regions of Uttarakhand so it takes time for travellers to reach out to us. The most suitable form of travel is through govt. transport buses that operate daily from major cities like Delhi and Dehradun.
    • Delhi- Chaukhutia: 14 hours
    • Hrishikesh- Chaukhutia- 12 hours

    Kindly discuss about the travel with us in advance so that we can convey about the travel routes and bus timings.
