Khati Village, Uttarakhand

Project FUEL
India

Nestled in the wooded hills and en-route the majestic Pindari Glacier, Khati is a small picturesque village wrapped in rhododendrons and oak trees, in the Kumaon region of Uttarakhand. Legends say that the villagers of Khati are the direct descendants of those who sheltered the Pandavas during their Vanavas.

Khati, although remote, witnesses' a significant footfall of trekkers on their ways to Pindari, Kafni or Sunderdunga Glaciers. But despite its unparalleled beauty, rich history and culture— the village still has a hard time coping up with the lack of crucial basic amenities i.e. roads, healthcare, education and electricity.

  • Project: The Wise Wall Project is an initiative by Project FUEL and FUEL Foundation to document the rural wisdom of our villages and celebrate it through art murals. The initiative transforms villages into living classrooms, turning the walls of the same onto blackboards and canvases that uncover striking yet simple life learnings. The project aims to ignite a movement of transforming the long forgotten villages into open-air galleries, exhibiting human wisdom for anyone and everyone in the world to see and benefit from. In the second edition of the Wise Wall Project, Project FUEL collaborated with the Hans Foundation to collect and paint the life lessons of the villagers of Khati. Khati has now become the second village after Saur, in the recent history to have a documented database of life lessons from an entire community. And as wishful as it gets, the village has now been transformed into a living storybook that tells the tales of Khati, like never before.
