Sustainable Rural Care

Dental check up camp in action in a rural school

Teaching children about oral health

A beautiful story from Tamil Nadu, south India.  For the last 20 odd years, a group of intrepid dental workers have laboured to change the rural reality of their local villages.  ADCERRA is a project started by French dentist, Dr. Jacques Verre, devotee of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother, settled in Auroville, he has trained rural women to be health workers and disseminate the importance of oral health in surrounding villages of the Auroville bio-region.  Their labour of love is beautifully illustrated in this short film that has recently being released.
