This section is an introduction to the key, distinguishing initiatives of AVAG. These are unique features rooted in our value system of empowering and participatory development in the villages. Each initiative is an effort toward holistic development of individuals and communities.

In our pursuit toward this goal, we have designed programs that are flexible, sensitive to local issues of caste, gender and environment. Through these initiatives, we attempt also to bridge the communication gaps between village groups and Auroville to ensure a harmonious progression to an inclusive future.
