India – Bichli Haveli Project


Project Details
Upcoming Trips

The Bichli Haveli Project will restore and rehabilitate a 140-year-old haveli located in the old city of Udaipur, transforming it into a community and heritage resource center with revenue-generating accommodation to ensure its ongoing operation. In addition to the restoration of the Bichli Haveli, the project aims to bring benefit to the community in which it is located.


  • Restore and rehabilitate the Bichli Haveli
  • Establish a community engagement program including alley greening, composting, graywater treatment and provide public meeting and play spaces
  • Train and employ Udaipur’s migrant women laborers to create teams of skilled restoration specialists who can use these skills in the future
  • Provide economic benefit by hiring local staff and supporting local suppliers and services
  • Demonstrate to the larger community the viability of restoration as a tool of community renewal and improvement, and provide them with the resources to embark on similar initiatives
