Description: The Project: Rajasthan was inhabited long before 2500 BC and the Indus Valley Civilization had its foundation here in north Rajasthan itself. Around 1400 BC the Aryans paid a visit and settled down forever in the area. The local population was pushed down to south and towards the east. Afghans, Turks, Persians and Mughals followed in mixing their blood, first in war then in peace, with the existing original inhabitants. This blend gave the martial lineage to the Rajputs (member of any of several powerful Hindu landowning and military lineages). Jodhpur is a popular tourist destination featuring many palaces, forts and temples. The city is known as the Sun City for the bright sunny weather it enjoys all year. It is also referred as the Blue City due to the indigo tinge of the whitewashed houses around the Mehrangarh Fort. Work camps here will be organised with the cooperation of local community for rural development and water shed management, environmental education and working together with local villages in rural development projects. Most of the schools around Jodhpur lack basic infrastructure like school buildings, education materials, playgrounds and drinking water. Volunteers can make a big difference in the daily lives of these children by providing the necessities listed above. Location: Jodhpur and neighbouring regions, State of Rajasthan is accessible by domestic airlines. Trains and buses operate on a daily basis from New Delhi and Mumbai.
