VOLUNTEERING AT SACREDGROVES
SacredGroves is no ordinary construction site. You don’t need previous construction experience to work here. We are a vibrant and international group of volunteers, architecture interns and labourers, all working together as a team and and learning from each other in the process. Our own personal growth is an important element of the project.
As a volunteer you will –
- Learn construction skills on-the-job
- Learn about sustainable construction and eco technologies
- Be encouraged to take initiative and responsibility
- Have the freedom and flexibility to express your skills, ideas and creativity through our programme of ‘micro projects’
- Have fun meeting and working with people from all over the world!
Our working hours are 7.45am to 4.30pm, Monday to Saturday.
We ask for a minimum commitment of 4 weeks (after a one-week trial).
In return for your time and good energy, SacredGroves will give you –
- Breakfast, lunch and tea breaks (and dinner for volunteers staying on site)
- Some simple dormitory-style accommodation is available
- A SAVI card (if you volunteer for a minimum 2 months) which gives you various discounts in Auroville and also a waiver of the daily Guest Contribution.
