The City envisaged by the Mother is under serious threat from speculative developers… If we do not get the land, we will not be able to build the city.
Dr. Karan Singh, Chairman, Auroville Foundation
The ACRES FOR AUROVILLE land fundraiser is a dynamic collaboration of Auroville International & Lands for Auroville Unified-LFAU dedicated to acquiring remaining crucial plots of missing land for Auroville. It was launched on Sri Aurobindo’s birthday, 15 August 2014, with the express goal of raising funds to make a collective gift of land for the City of Dawn’s 50th birthday in February 2018.
Your donations to A4A provide the principal resource for completing Auroville’s land base – the essential physical basis for its harmonious development and full manifestation. A4A donations give the Auroville Land Board means to transform still-missing plots into new land for Auroville – for a unique city consecrated to human unity, the growth of consciousness, and models for sustainable life on our planet.
A4A has enlarged its focus phase by phase, thanks to the enthusiastic solidarity of so many friends and well-wishers. For each of the first 3 years, we have met our fundraising target, which enabled a wider action for every following year. Donations to A4A Phases 1, 2, & 3 have enabled the addition of 15 new plots of Auroville land in the Matrimandir Circle, in the City hub, and in the immediate Greenbelt.
On August 15th 2017 – Sri Aurobindo’s birthday – we begin Acres for Auroville Phase 4, dedicated to gathering funds for “Auroville Master Plan Priority Plots”. Purchase of the many still-missing plots is vital for the basic needs of unifying, consolidating, nurturing, and protecting:
The new PHASE 4 SUCCESS BAROMETER – the Mother’s Symbol – is posted on COLAAP’s A4A Donor Pages. As with the previous Success Barometers for Phases 1 – 3, your donations will make its petals increasingly golden, a beautiful expression of our collective progress in raising needed resources for the missing land!
ACRES FOR AUROVILLE has proved that together we can move some mountains! So, let’s do it again!
