W.E.L.L. and me:

A new meaning of beautiful

by Tayka Hesselgrave

Tayka is an American university undergraduate who came to

Auroville on a study-abroad programme. An important part of

this programme is “Service Learning” where the students join

in workplaces in Auroville to get on-the-job experience of an-

other culture. Tayka was assigned to W.E.L.L. (Women’s Empow-

erment through Local Livelihood),a project of the Auroville Vil-

lage Action Trust which trains poor village women in a craft

which recycles wastepaper and guides them on to make their

own production company with W.E.L.L. continuing to help them

with administration and marketing. —Bhavana Dee
