Udavi Payanam

nan payanam seium bodhu matruvargullaku udavi seiya virippum
while travelling i wish to help others

Udavi Payanam is travel with the spirit of aiding others. It is a concept of connecting with community as we travel and improving the spaces that we pass through, and it is a project that will connect travellers with organizations possessing worthwhile causes.

The name is Tamil so that it remains true to the place the idea was born, the city of Auroville, Tamil Nadu. Udavi Payanam is a network for travellers to volunteer to help humanity and the environment. We are building this network by volunteering with a variety of non-profit organizations and communicating our experiences right here.
