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 travelling from outside states need to be in mandatory quarantine for 7 days. (This is as per the guidelines of the Tamil Nadu government).
  • Domestic travelers coming from Maharashtra and Kerala are also required to be in quarantine for 7 days upon arrival in Tamil Nadu unless it concerns a short business trip (less than 48 hours). All travellers coming into Tamil Nadu should E-register themselves at https://eregister.tnega.org.For volunteers coming in, they will need to have to be assisted to have an adequate place for quarantine and the host shall ensure the signing of the self-declaration form signed by the volunteer and the unit executive or a copy of the test result. Savi will register them only after they complete the quarantine.
  • The guest 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.
  • All general inquiries regarding volunteering in Auroville can be done through our email ([email protected])

Kind regards,
Savi Team
