Rural Tourism for Rural Empowerment .

The Verma Model of Rural Upliftment has brought a very positive 40 years for Kanda, a little village in Uttarakhand. What started as a single man’s effort, the seeds sown by Jeevan Lal Verma has helped Kanda garner international attention including research from professors at Center for Tourism and Research – Lucknow, International Center for Mountain Development and Research, Kathmandu apart from researchers from Finland and USA doing their research work.

Kanda has seen visitors from various countries, including the USA, UK and Canada, for community collaboration and volunteer tourism powered by their own ROSE (

Rural Organization For Social Elevation

) foundation.

We at Innovate4India are inspired by such success stories and are soon launching a community for nation building through a Crowdsourcing mechanism.
