Project FUEL

Cattle are an integral part of the Maasai society. It is an essential economic asset and very precious to the community. While the women take care of the cattle, it is the Maasai men who generally take them out for grazing grass. This wall mural depicts the Maasai men, both young and old, taking the cattle for grazing. The wall was conceptualized and designed by Poornima Sukumar.

The Wise Wall Project is an initiative of Project FUEL that aims to document, design and strengthen the wisdom of rural communities and marginalised villages using art and community outreach programmes. The arts lead the way to raise support for the challenges these villages face today like migration, quality education and access to basic amenities like water and roads.

In the third edition of the Wise Wall Project, we are collaborating with the culturally rich and one of the oldest communitys in the world, the Maasai community, in Arusha, Tanzania, in partnership with Vikram Solar Ltd., Vijana Inspiring Foundation, Lions Club of Dar es Salaam and Arusha City, and Google Arts and Culture. Along with building an on-ground community centre and museum for the community, we are bringing an exclusive insight into the life, lifestyle and learnings from this inspiring community.
