Build An Inn And Create Jobs In The Kolti Village, Uttarakhand, India

I visited Delhi in June 2017 for a business meet and stayed at this humble guesthouse -"Bed n Chai" in Greater Kailash, situated in the South Of Delhi. There I met this young lad by the name of Guddu Panwar. He was chatty and had a great sense of humor. At the breakfast table, he shared his story with us, which was inspiring and had a great impact on me.

Guddu is in his 20's and lives a life that's challenging - he was diagnosed with a critical condition of the spine (spina bifida) when he was a child. This led to him becoming an amputee.

As he grew older he realized that there was very little potential if he stayed back in his village, Kolti, a remote area somewhere in the foothills of the Himalayas. At the same time moving out of his village, meant working outside the comfort of people who loved and understood him. Despite knowing that he took the brave step of moving to Delhi, in order to stand on his own. Battling all the hardships and insecurities, he continues to make his presence felt in this world as he participates in small ways as a leader in "Disabilities Awareness Campaigns" motivating others with disabilities, all over Delhi and also overseas in Vietnam and Cambodia.

His prized moment was at the "New Delhi Marathon" on 25th February 2018 when he met Sachin Tendulkar, a former Indian cricketer and a role model for many. Sachin later commented on Guddu in a tweet commending his inspiring spirit.

His dream is to invite people from all over to experience the culture, the lands and the beauty of his Village - Kolti, as well as create jobs for the people who live there, so they can achieve their own goals too! 
With your humble contribution, we can build a basic toilet, shower, and a kitchen.

I'm just helping him make his dream a reality in my own way. To know more about this project, please visit and show your support in any way you choose.

Hello Good People!

We have managed to set things in motion. We're using this money to redo the roof of the shepherd house and make a mini-kitchen to cook warm meals.

We are going to begin the work before the rains kick in soon!

Thanks a ton for your contribution!

God Bless!

Hello Good People!

We made enough to get started on this Campsite! And all thanks to you wonderful human beings that made it possible!

Your contribution has helped us build a basic toilet facility and now we will implement a shower head and a very basic kitchen. As we began this fundraiser, we realized there was something more important to address - The ROOF! Before the rains kick in - we will bring together the logistics to redo the roof!

The kitchen will be revamped with facilities like a wash basin + a platform + a utensil rack and a small stove. We actually built a small DIY cooking area so we could get the people in this small community involved with building and helping out in whatever way they can.

We envision it to be a successful community because we have begun this journey with a lot of contributions made with Love and positive energy!

Here are a few photographs that were taken at the Kolti Campsite recently.

We welcome you all with open doors, homely meals and to experience the beauty and wonder here in the foothills of the Himalayas! Do Visit - 

On behalf of Guddu Panwar and the village of Kolti.

I Thank You! <3

Keep contributing for a good cause, you'll be doubly blessed! :)
