And last night at Pavilion of Tibetan Culture in Internatinal Zone we have witnessed that by 15 children from Tibetan Children's Village who have stayed in Auroville for 6 weeks as exchange students. They have learned many new thing, they have been involved in daily life, even volunteered at the 10th AV Marathon, and more.
