My dear friends, brothers & sisters,
I am an Auroville youth, born in eduachavadi, growing up in Auroville schools and now working for the community. For several years I worked in Pitchandikulam, and now I work at Auroorchard, practicing regenerative organic farming. I am very passionate about farming and forestry in general, and I have gained my knowledge in traditional agriculture and modern regenerative organic farming through hands on practices. My great interest is to teach our youth from Auroville & Bioregion. I am already teaching some of this through YouthLink workshops.
I read about a certified course called “Deep Ecology, Natural Connection & Natural Farming” in Gaia Ashram, Thailand this September 2018, which I would love to attend. I feel that I have good knowledge about the Auroville bioregion, but I would like to experience how other communities teach about this topic. This would help me teach better. Also i have never traveled outside India before. To take this course, I need about Rs.70,000/- in total. So I kindly request you to help me to raise fund which can be transferred through YouthLink account (251048), who is helping to get me there.
If you all could support me to attend this course in Thailand it would be great. It will help give me some perspective from another regions point of view and culture on the same topic.
