Asmat is an NGO founded and run by students of Delhi University. It aims to bring about a concrete change at the grassroots level via youth mobilisation. We have adopted a village in rural Rajasthan – Soda, where we have been working on issues of education, governance and sensitisation since October 2013 under the guidance of its Sarpanch, Ms. Chhavi Rajawat who is the first woman Sarpanch in India with an MBA.


We are currently recruiting volunteers for the 2015 Winter Volunteer Program. Students from diverse backgrounds and different educational qualifications will come together to work on development projects in the areas of Menstruation, Sanitation, Civic Awareness, and Non-Academic Education.

The group of volunteers will be living and working in the village over the course of two weeks. This winter, we will be focusing on:

  • Working with the women and adolescent girls on menstruation and personal safety.
  • Information sessions regarding sanitation with the villagers.
  • Sessions regarding government pension schemes and their applicability.
  • Sessions with children on health, hygiene, public speaking and gender sensitisation.

Program dates: 12th – 26th December, 2015
Accommodation and food shall be provided at the Sarpanch’s residence at nominal costs. We shall provide food but volunteers to carry their own bedding and any medication that they might need.



Being a part of the program will:

  • Lead to a first-hand understanding of issues at the grassroots level.
  • Help redefine reality of village life, highlight the problems faced and solution possible, specifically solutions that students can be a part of.
  • Give the students an opportunity to dwell upon the field of development and have questions answered by an eminent personality working in the field.
