Volunteer experiences

Marina, volunteering until August 2016, published a movie on YouTube about her experience.

Dear friends,

Auroville units are slowly reopening as per the Government regulations, we can expect more regular operations in place.An update to volunteers joining Auroville. 

  • People coming from within Tamil Nadu do not need a quarantine at this time.
  • All people who are traveling from outside states need to be in mandatory quarantine for 14 days. (This is as per the guidelines of Tamil Nadu government).
  • For volunteers coming in, they will need to have to be assisted to have the adequate place for quarantine and the host shall ensure signing of the self declaration form. 
  • The guests houses need to be prepared to be able to accommodate them/ or if the units have their accommodation for the volunteers then as the host they should follow similar guidelines (including self-declaration) and also assist the people in quarantine for all their essentials.
  • International Travel has not yet reopen; Foreign citizens are still unable to join

You can still browse the opportunities on this website
