Support Fund for Skilled Youth and Professionals
by Radio Team   
Sunday, 28 May 2006

Every year young people from around the world express their wish to live and work in Auroville but many are not able to do so due to lack of personal funds. While some of the youth come with the intention of joining Auroville, others simply come to take part in the Auroville experiment and contribute their energy and work for a period of time. Most of them come from India, the USA and Europe, from countries of the former Soviet Union, from the South Asian countries and even from South America and Korea. From the African continent appeals are made as well. Many of these young people, also some of those from developed countries, find it difficult to finance their stay in Auroville if it is longer than a few months.

Professional Volunteer Support

t is a great opportunity for young people to work and stay in Auroville and to get to know a very different way of sharing life with others. For many it is a life experience. A few stay on.
Unfortunately it is only possible for people with means to come and participate. Auroville needs young energy and the help, especially of professionals, in various fields. The slowly emerging new society and township require development in many fields and areas. A group of Aurovilians are focusing on this very issue. One initiative is to establish a support fund in order to provide food and shelter. This project has received a lot of appreciation by AVI centres and many individuals from Auroville and abroad. The aim is to be able to offer work opportunities in Auroville to at least 3 young people at the beginning of 2006.
Feedback and suggestions are welcome, donations towards the fund as well. Donations may be made with Auroville Fund, to 'Professional / Volunteer Support Fund' or via Financial Service account No 0136 Professionals / Volunteer Support Fund.
