Auroville Village Action Group (AVAG)

managed by A. Vogelbacher

About us

Founded in 1983, Auroville Village Action Group (AVAG) is an NGO committed to grass roots community building with the villages neighboring Auroville – a pioneering social experiment in Villipuram district, rural Tamil Nadu, South India, which aims to realize human unity. Since its inception, AVAG has developed into a solid and reputable organisation for positive social change that fosters the integral development of civil society, democracy building and social advocacy, including gender equity and caste equality– the foundation stones for building a sustainable and healthy co-operative Indian society.

In response to the complex set of conditions that results in gender inequity, poverty and limited access to resources for development, AVAG has refined a unique and multifaceted community development program, executed through a structure of Self Help Group’s (SHG) and Federations, of micro credit, community service, social enterprise development and education.

AVAG’s activities are all designed to empower the rural communities to organise themselves for their own personal and communal empowerment.
