How to contribute
Santé: Auroville Institute for Integral Health endeavours to offer all its clients quality multi-disciplinary healthcare in a pleasant, peaceful and safe environment. With our nominal Auroville Central Fund budget, we manage our day-to-day running expenses and the maintenance of the clinic.
Donations, by way of professional healthcare volunteers, medical equipment, and financial aid are what help us to grow and develop further everyday. And in doing so we can serve our patients better. The integral way.
Santé welcomes trained professionals from various healthcare disciplines to volunteer with us. If you are interested to help us in this way, we request you to contact us directly.
There are a few regulations (primarily for foreign volunteers) from the Indian Government. To learn more about volunteering in Auroville, we encourage you to contact SAVI, Auroville’s Volunteer service on firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the SAVI website.
Good quality medical equipment is expensive. The Auroville Institute for Integral Health is growing everyday, and we would be happy to hear from you if you have medical equipment, in good condition, you would like to donate. Please contact us at email@example.com for equipment donations.
Financial contributions for Auroville’s development are channeled through the Auroville Unity Fund from where donations are directed to the designated projects.
