the world is one family
“Auroville wants to be a universal town where men and women of all countries are able to live in peace and progressive harmony above all creeds, all politics and all nationalities. The purpose of Auroville is to realise Human Unity”
– The Mother, Founder of Auroville
Auroville Village Action Group was born out of the need to extend this vision to the neighboring villages and assist in their integral development in order to truly realise Human Unity in Diversity.
Sports For Harmony
In response to the complex set of conditions that results in gender inequity, poverty and limited access to resources for development, We have designed a unique and multifaceted development program to reveal the innate wisdom and manifest the full potential of rural communities through collaborative efforts.
“I was afraid of my family, and people thought I belong to dalit community that's why I get along with them. Now there is a big change in my family as well as the village. people in family don’t speak about caste issue anymore”
“In the past with a single income, families were suffering. Men used to borrow money at high interest, now women can get it at low rate and men value it. Since I go out to work now, sharing of household work has begun. Taking my example my sister in law has also started to work”
"My parents are agriculture labourers. I have two sisters. After class 12,I was working in a juice centre. I came to know about the summer camp and came. There,I learnt english and did theater. It gave me a lot self confidence and communication capacity”
Psycho Social Service
"I like healing therapies. I have learnt energy healing and somatic experience. I practice it at home and on relatives. They say 'My body is hurting, you do your magic'. When I am able to help ,I feel happy and I feel approachable and useful to people"
