LIFE EDUCATION CENTRE

Holistic learning & craft workshop

Life Education Centre is dedicated to helping women feel powerful and confident in all areas of life. With our holistic approach to education and empowerment, we encourage women to exercise strength in their personal, social and professional lives.

Based in Auroville, India, we recognize the lived experiences of the village women in our local community. Facing difficult upbringings, lack of educational and work opportunities, family obligations, financial constraints, and cultural attitudes toward women, we offer programming that allows women to grow and thrive in their own way. At LEC, women can imagine their lives in a new light and act to make that vision a reality.

ECO SERVICE

Waste management - second hand resource

​Our primary goal is to minimize as much as possible the impact of Auroville’s waste on the environment. At present, EcoService collects waste from approximately 2/3 of the Auroville population, while 1/3 of Aurovilians choose other methods for disposing of their waste. But of the waste collected by EcoService, about 60% is recycled and 40% landfilled.
