Reviews for Bhumi

Rating: 5 stars  

Joining Bhumi had been one of the life changing experiences for me. I started up as a volunteer and got more involved as a coordinator after an year. The key differentating aspect of Bhumi is that it has something for everyone. For people who could give an year-long commitment and interested in teaching, there are a number of teaching options. For those who are uncertain of their commitment timings, short term volunteering options such as event coordination is available. Bhumi had also been a platform and helped realise a few volunteer ideas into full scale projects and that's something very special. The time with Bhumi for me has been really great and I'm looking forward for a lot more of it!

Bhumi , in the vernacular language means "world", and is indeed a little world of its own! My one year association with Bhumi has drastically changed the way at look at others, my society and at myself. As a volunteering platform that encourages people to share love by doing what do what they love to do, i presume that this is one important factor for bhumi having such a strong volunteer base, and even with such high number of volunteers with varied thoughts, it has been able to keep all things organised. So if u were one, in the pursuit of - wider horizons, a contentful life, handful of people to mentor and motivate you, and looking up on opportunities to little-by-little develop a better tomorrow, bhumi could be ur best hit. But beware, the unconditional love of our little kids could leave you awestruck.. And the enthusiasm of the volunteers here are very much contagious :P !!


As in the case of many Bhumians out here, there are highchances that ur " pleasure of volunteering" could transform to a "passion" then!!

Bhumi - The best thing in my life!!!

I started to volunteer for Bhumi from 2014 and that was the best thing that I did ever in my life. Bhumi primarily focuses on supplementary education to the under privileged children. And also it supports all other possible work to make a change in this society.

Volunteering at Bhumi has always been not only giving something to the society, it has been also learning a lot of things. Yes!! Bhumi is also a platform for every volunteers to improve their skills in many aspects.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I had the great privilege to volunteer for Bhumi chapter in Kolkata. Initially I volunteered short term with them on "Joy to the World" . I was blown away at the incredible work the were doing, the kind of impact they created in terms of actual change. The commitment of the Chennai Volunteers was Inspiring, most were volunteering along with their regular jobs. I decided I wanted to volunteer for them and now even though I am not a full time volunteer I know I will always be there for Bhumi.
Bhumi believes in bringing real change in education system, I believe in the structure of Bhumi, of facilitating education during weekends by young college students and professionals. Its a two way exchange of values and I can say with confidence, the experience brings in more Integrity and Authenticity in the Volunteers.

I have been associated with Bhumi for more than a year now. I cherish every moment with Bhumi. It has given me an opportunity to do what i have always wanted to do. A platform to help out children who need it the most. I am helping out more volunteers to help out as many children as possible. Bhumi is driven almost entirely by volunteers, and for a pan India non profit organisation to work, the volunteers need to be self motivated.This self motivation only comes when we have an organisation like Bhumi. Three cheers for Bhumi!

Bhumi - NGO ! One of the most beautiful part of my life :)
Bhumi is amalgamation of everything in life.
Learning, childhood, fun, helping, mentoring, future, social, environment, leaders, love, family, friends, dreams, daring, caring and all things !

Going by my personal experience of being an introvert and now getting recognised for my people skills has been great.

Its an platform where the volunteers gives in completely to the cause and receives double in return. Be it in form of fun, experience or the learning for the lifetime.
I believe its privilege and lucky to be a volunteer.

Volunteering has become a hobby and a passion !

Bhumi is a wonderful platform for gelling up with kids .. It also refreshes our minds and makes our relationship with kids more stronger. It's a very good thought and the leaders should keep it up!

Been volunteering since past 4 years. Not a dull moment and more than I could teach the latest ds they taught me a lot in return. This experience has been life changing... And I cannot thank enough everybody associated with it. It's a mega network of volunteers fastened together by common interests and Bhumi employees at the same time. Always full of help and advices, suggestions to the volunteers that seek. Plus ample opportunities within to explore one's own potential to the fullest!!
