Centre for social outreach and tribal welfare -
An AVP CSR Initiative

The vision of Center for Social Outreach and Tribal Welfare is this - simply, friendship and compassion

Centre for Social outreach and Tribal Welfare


The vision for the Centre for Social Outreach and Tribal Welfare is built around one of the fundamental precepts of Ayurveda: treat the suffering patient as the vaidya’s own child. Maitri , friendship and Karuna, compassion, are two fundamental principles espoused by this ancient branch of medicine and have been uniformly embraced at all AVP centres. At AVP Pathanjalipuri, this vision is transformed into the Centre for Social Outreach and Tribal Welfare

The centre is primarily engaged in two activities:

Medicine & Empowerment of Youth


A weekly clinic for the tribals and periodic medical camps in rural areas has been an ongoing activity. Over the years, the centre has reached out to a sizeable population of the locals and has become a thriving centre for quality medical assistance.



The Ekal Vidyalaya Foundation is a registered, Non-Profit service organisation dedicated to bringing education & village development to rural India. The overriding philosophy is to take a holistic approach to social and economic development.

The Ekal movement is the largest grass roots, non-government education movement operating in remote and tribal villages of India. Camps are conducted in our campus, with the objective of giving awareness programs to tribal people and village group.

AVP Pathanjalipuri partners with Ekal Vidyalaya Foundation and conducts free medical camps at various locations for the benefit of the surrounding tribal and economically disadvantaged population. Areas include

Doomanur | Chembukarai | Thadagam | Somayanur | Karamadai | Sholayur |
Anaikatti | Sirumugai | Madathur | Veerapandi | Vayalur | Kanuvai | Agali
