The NGO SWADHIN YATRA is based in France since 2009 and develops projects in India since 2006, in different domains.

The founders, Elodie (French, who lived 7 years in India to develop the projects of SWADHIN YATRA) and Victor (Indian, from Kolkata) created SWADHIN YATRA as an NGO first in 2006 in Kolkata, which then got transferred to France in Nantes after they moved back there in 2013. The French association SWADHIN YATRA still currently supports the projects in India since the NGO stopped in Kolkata.
