Jothi, or the persistence of a passion
The Auroville village action group, the Auroville sports resource center and Dehashakthi helped form a sports and cultural association for the Bio Region called ABSCA (Auroville Bioregional Sports and Cultural Association). This ABSCA is registered under the Societies Act with the sub register of Tindivanam. About 30 sports clubs from the villages around Auroville are in the process of registering themselves with ABSCA.
By the end of 2017 a sports calendar will be prepared for the Bio Region. This sports calendar will enable several sports and cultural events for the Bio Region. Following these events a representative team for the Bio Region will be selected to participate in the district level tournaments in Viluparam.
Any support from individuals, organizations (NGO’s and otherwise) are very welcome towards the development of ABSCA and its activities for the Bio Region.
