Auroville Village Action Group

Unverified non-profit organisation

The Auroville Village Action Group was set up to better organise the various activities in Auroville, India which had developed out of the Village Action Group which began in 1983. All these activities were based in the perception that in its search to realise an actual Human Unity, Auroville had to work together with the people of the local villages for their own community development.

This work involves Aurovilians, professional social workers, and local people, and includes programmes for children, for women, for men, for the needy, for farmers, for leaders. The aim is to help villagers to counteract the drain of urban migration by accessing their own and local resources to strengthen and develop their own communities. At present there are eight units of the Village Action Trust, each with its own area of focus. Each unit has its own executives, and is completely independent and responsible for its funding and operations.
