Interview with Dominique

Program by :

We invited Dominique to speak to the radio about her project SAVI and the circumstances for volunteers in Auroville. The zeal and passion for making a difference stands out while speaking with Dominique as she narrate’s the challenges and opportunities volunteers possess while contributing to Auroville. She points out volunteers are an integral part of the Auroville story, “We have Auroville because of the volunteers efforts over the years”. In this high energy exchange of ideas, she laid out various plans and ideas the community could adopt to safe guard their greatest asset, the volunteer workforce. In the recent past the change in visa policy of the Indian government has made things already tough for volunteers to freely come and participate in the Auroville experiment. She emphasis, the community too has developed some policies which make it difficult for the volunteers to imagine contributing to growth of the community. How have we reached a place where the volunteers are not only, not encouraged, but strangely are sometimes not even acknowledged for their unconditional giving. Recently she made a presentation in the CAT’s program, underlining the exact amount of contribution the volunteers make towards Auroville’s overall wealth. She has made some ground breaking discoveries and has also developed a detailed plan, to help the community reverse this situation of not being an ideal choice for volunteers coming from all over the world. Auroville belongs as much to them as to the people living here. With this strong determination to cause a break through, she will soon be initiating her LEAD project, to know more, support and contribute towards this endeavor you can contact her on
