AHAL – Action for Human rights And Liberation is to bring up the life style of Arunthathiars. This group of people is one of the most neglected and unwanted groups among Dalits and other caste groups. This centre was started in June 1999 keeping Kilpennathur as its base by Frs. Eugine Muthu, sj and Arockia raj, sj. At present three Jesuits (Two priests and a scholastic) are working towards the development of the Arunthathiars. This social action team was born in order to work among the Arunthathiars of Thiruvannamali and Villupuram districts. At present we have contacts over 30 villages in kilpennathur, Gingee, Chengam, Thiruvannamalai and Vettavalam unions.
