My Village My Nation, mera gaon mera desh is a project for villages worldwide, parallel to the other art projects, in which TellusArt works to make villages more alive, responsive, growing & eventful in respect of arts, culture, heritage and environment. The interesting aspect of this project is the village where people will do the whole work by their own because they have a good knowledge about their sources. TellusArt will simply support & guide them to complete it in an effective way.

In this direction, Kaliyanwala in Uttrakhand is the first village and TellusArt has decided to give priority to the school construction and basic living support for needy kids in this village, therefore some awareness programs were initiated in this way, like, sustainable and effective utilization of its natural resources, to protect spanking environment, to preserve Art & Culture and so on.
