My Village My Nation – meragaonmeradesh’ is a project for worldwide villages, 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. This project was started in March 2011, and first event was held in February 2012 in Village Kaliyanwala, Uttrakhand - North India.
The interesting aspect of this project is, the village where people will do the whole work because they have a good knowledge about their sources. TellusArt will simply support & guide them to complete it in an effective way.
Because of the vast poverty in the various countries, some awareness programs, to protect and utilize its natural resources, environment, Art & Culture are required. Similarly, for the institutional development wide spread educational development is also a time’s demand. For such, TellusArt has decided to give priority to the school construction and basic living support for needy kids in this village called 'Kaliyanwala' in Uttrakhand.
