January 22, 2020 Responsible Tourism No Comments Email Email

Away from the hustles and bustles of the nearby tourist destinations Nainital and Almora, Kanda is a hidden paradise in India, where the age-old Kumaoni culture, traditions and hospitality reign supreme.

It is a perfect destination for those who are looking for an exotic voluntary tourism vacations in lush green landscape with mighty Himalayan peaks in backdrop.
In simple words, bowl-shaped Kanda valley is a serene hideaway to explore pristine beauty of nature whilst helping the villagers in living below poverty line and lacking in even the basic necessities of life.
Voluntary Tourism in Kanda is a life-changing activity. When you arrive at this quaint region, you’ll be impressed by its richness in real-life treasures. Whilst its pure air and panoramic mountain scenery are visual delights, age-old Indian hospitality, vivid traditions and soldiering qualities are cultural delights.
Kanda people are mainly occupied in agricultural farming, tea gardening, horticulture, forestry, handicrafts, jewelry. Their artistic skills in carpet weaving, painting, bamboo craft, carving on gold and silver are notable. But as you go on exploring the place you’ll find that more than 50% of people residing here live below poverty line and lack in basic necessities such as adequate sanitation and shelter.
Just like any other family vacations, a few days in this remote county, living with the locals as a family, knowing their culture and traditions will provide you with immense of pleasurable moments. But what’s makes voluntary tourism vacations in Kanda different and unique is that these pleasurable moments of your life will help in the growth
and development of the poor villagers. Your pleasure will give them happiness of lifetime, isn’t it great?
Thanks to R.O.S.E. (Rural Organization for Social Elevation), it has come up with a number of volunteer opportunities to develop this region. Founded by Mr. Jeevan Lal Verma in the year 1980, it has contributed a lot in the development of Kanda community. Without regular finances but with firm believe in himself and volunteer
support, Mr. Jeevan and his organization have successful to provide solar powered home lights, construct toilets, bio gas system and cattle house, build community centre and fair price shop, and provide shelter and clothing for poor families.
The goal of Mr. Verma and his organization is to improve quality of life of the rural poor in this region whilst maintaining cultural integrity and ecological balance. A number of domestic and international tourist volunteers come to Kanda with a noble cause to help the poor while exploring the Himalayan beauty. Verma family
welcomes them open heartedly to live with them, experience Kumaoni culture and assist manually and financially.
