Auroville Learning Network

Advance Workflow using WordPress

Auroville community is a live experiment of bringing humanity together in a collaborative living. The entire community is driven by volunteers working on different projects. There is a huge demand for volunteers for various projects and there is a huge demand from the international and Indian community to become volunteers. In order to bridge this, this portal provides a listing of all the projects that require volunteers, allowing the prospective volunteers to choose the area and project they are comfortable with.

The workflow process starts with the application received from the volunteer right up to the onboarding of the volunteer with intermediary steps that allow for selection, review, documentation (including Visa documents for International Volunteers). The system also supports the review of the volunteers after the onboarding.

The website is built on WordPress framework and has custom plugin for management off projects, workflow for volunteer management.
