Thamarai (is the Tamil word for lotus flower) the project, stands for the values of full potential and well being for a thriving people and planet. We engage with the villages near the International township of Auroville since 2006, with a series of formal and informal education projects including two after schools for 120 children, a natural health care education program and well being service, environmental and sports program and community leadership and capacity development.
In context to our 14 years of service with children and youth, Thamarai’s work has been a counter support to a strong reliance on rote education in schools, inadequate literacy skills and social issues such as debt and addiction. Thamarai continues to create an enabling environment for the children to be creative, expressive, responsible while improving their learning curve and life skills.
