Amrita Sanjeevani, the student seva association of Amritapuri campus, organized a youth camp titled Sanjeevanam’15, at Attapadi during May 24-26, 2015.  The camp provided a rich experience for all the participants, serving to expand their hearts and minds and leading them to discover a new kind of happiness.  Forty Amrita students participated in the three day camp.  The camp was inaugurated by Sampoojya Swami Turiyamritananda Puri.   Swamiji distributed bags, umbrellas, sarees, towels, woollen clothes and medicinal plants like the anti cancer ‘Lakshmi Tharu’ to the villagers which they received very thankfully. The first of Sanjeevani’s efforts at Attapadi was to renovate one of the old Ashram buildings to make it usable as a tuition center for the village children.  The next step was to create awareness through classes on the health consequences of alcohol and smoking and why we should avoid these evil habits and finally, the very necessary guidance on sanitation and cleanliness for improving healthy living by creating clean surroundings.
