SVARAM's work has emerged from the creative education and the cultural heritage activities of Mohanam Cultural Center ( It is grounded in the local rural Tamil Culture, recognizing the ways, gifts and challenges that this ancient culture is facing as seen in the growing disorientation of the youth and deterioration of ethical values. Our development approach has always been rooted in the context of the immanent, present transition between the traditional and contemporary life.

The young team of SVARAM is encouraged to reflect on the values and treasures of their ancient and traditional culture. At the same time, they learn to discern the impact of modern ways and influences on social structures and its functioning, on health and environment.

It seems natural to share the acquired knowledge and skills. Thus the team and the international volunteers co-create and participate in various programs and activities :

  • classes in the village cultural centers like "Tamarai" ( and "Mohanam"
  • presentations and projects in Auroville's outreach schools
  • offering tours to visiting students and NGOs
  • creating internships for high school and college students
  • mentoring diploma studies
  • organizing interviews and exposures with respected resource persons
  • catering to eminent visitors and traditional leaders
  • In case you are interested to participate in these out-and inreach activities, please check also our section on volunteers
