Like any other initiative, AWARE requires various resources to carry out its missions and programmes. But, it is being set up innovatively to leverage the goodwill and already existing digital capabilities to make sure the work is carried out collaboratively and in a seamless manner. We envision AWARE as an entity without overheads and taking a leaf out of the gig economy, many of us have come together to offer a little service, through with Auroville benefits in a large way. However, AWARE still needs financial resources to access different types of talent, tools, technology, time of experts, etc. Towards this, we appeal to you to donate generously to enable us to create better AWAREness around Auroville.
