WELL is an acronym for Women Empowerment through Local Livelihood. The project started in 2005 as a Tsunami rehabilitation response when the areas around Auroville were severely affected. Following the Tsunami, the lives of people were thrown into disarray and that’s how the brand Wellpaper was conceived with its center located in Kottakarai village, Auroville.
