Building Update

Briefly, folks :

We didn't receive your donation yet!  Ever since the project went Live, GG (GlobalGiving) had major problems in its disbursements to India.  These have actually been stopped until they sort out the problem.

Don't worry!  We've worked out a "fiscal sponsorship" agreement with AVI-USA, so that GG will transfer your (and any future) donations to AVI-USA, which will forward it to the Auroville Unity Fund for us.

We're hoping to get your first monies for the Building real soon!

Stuff on the anvil and ready to start : the flooring in my office and the room next to it, and the upstairs toilets. 

And we're also planning to make the first shaft.  

We'll keep you updated.

Meanwhile, please spread the word to your friends, family, colleagues about the project!  Now that the funds bottleneck has been solved, let the taps flow!

Let's complete this marvelous building asap!

Love,

Tapas and Mita

for the Team of Auroville Language Lab.

PS : On November 20th, the Chief Resilience Officer of Chennai will bring a whole team from the Cooler Cities Action Initiative of the Adrienne Arsht-Rockefeller Foundation Resilience Centre, and the 100 Resilient Cities network to visit our building!  

We'll take them on a tour of the building and present all of its special features : the system of cooling without air-conditioning, lime, the cool-roof lime coating, vaastu, electromagnetic compliance, waste water recycling system, solar system, second-hand wood, etc. An Aurovilian architect friend whose research paper about our building was published in an Elsevier Journal on Building, will present on that paper and the advantages of lime.  And our two dear friends from the Auroville Probiotics House will present on the use of probiotics in our building, and the numerous advantages of probiotics in building construction.

One of the visiting team is a contributing editor to Rolling Stones magazine, so let's see if that visit gets us some coverage and helps get the message out!

PPS : We've also been doing a lot of tree planting around the building!  And our vortex which cleans the waste water for reuse is working perfectly now.
