DONATE

RuCoDeI has no capital stock but finances its operations through regular and/or one-time donations by private individuals, companies, institutions, churches or foundations. 

As the work in the donor countries is done through volunteers, almost 100% of donations will go directly to the beneficiaries, which currently is HLWM India.

BECOME A PART OF OUR MISSION

We equip rural communities through development of training material, “Training of Trainer” Seminars, assistance in project management, and mentorship of leaders.

 

We aim to equip workers for effective community development and health programmes through participatory teaching approaches, with a focus of empowering women. 

 

We train and partner with other NGOs who share the same principles and concepts: prevention rather than cure, development rather than relief, inter-sectoral rather than unilateral, bottom-up rather than top-down, community empowerment rather than foreign dominance. 

 

We use a development process that addresses the needs of the whole person - physical, spiritual, emotional, and social. 

 

We work with people of all religions, races and cultural beliefs. 

 

We work directly with NGOs within countries, with an initial focus in India. 

 

We raise funds to support training and projects in rural communities, for the time being with a 100% commitment to Hermon Living Water Ministries (HLWM), India. 

WE NEED YOUR HELP

Development of training material, running “Training of Trainer” seminars, setting up an infrastructure and hiring personnel for community development training and projects, community seed projects, primary health care, community health education, village committees, education of women, vocational training, primary and secondary schools, adult literacy, improved agriculture and fish farming, project management training and leadership training.
