This organisation started by the youth of Chennai, has lived up to the expectation of a lot of children adopting more than 6 schools and helping them out. When I went to teach the children English, the enthusiasm shown by the students as well as the volunteers was incredible. I appreciate the hard work being put in, for the development of the children.

Being a Bhumian, we're a part of the change we wish to see in the country. Teaching english to school students and making them feel as special their urban counterpart is a great feeling in itself. We at bhumi educate people, plant trees and work for the environment with a positive approach.

I have been regularly reading up on Bhumi's progress, and though not directly involved, receive updates on their latest initiatives. Bhumi's members are a very active, lively and committed team who have grown so quick in such a short span of time. It is inspiring for anyone who wants to be involved in social causes but wonders how and whether one can pull it off. With outstanding role models to learn from such as Bhumi, yes one can :-) Anu Chowdhry

Bhumi has been doing some meaningful work in the lives of the under privilaged, especially children and young adults. I have been a keen follower of the organisation since its origin. Though rarely involved, I still believe they are doing an amazing work considerig the fact that the volunteers, most or all of them are busy full time professionals and students.

BHUMI... normal people meeting for a great causes... the awakening of the GEN neXt in chennai... bhumi has played a major role... i was there for the orientation jus 2months ago.. i had talked to bhumians before i joined about my ideas of making student's career better... when i was at the orientation, i was appreciated and recognized... we had a chance to discuss about our idea.. i was part of CC and MAD at chennai.. they made me realize wat real life is.. we usually don't differentiate between giving a life and giving a living ... they made me understand the difference, i learned many things from bhumi's openings and activities it has always been mutual.. unfortunately i have not been able participate actively, but even now when i get involved in any social cause... bhumi is famous every where, for the work we do.. for every up coming NGO, bhumi is more than example.. its a ROLE MODEL>> PROUD TO BE A BHUMIAN...

I have been with Bhumi for almost a year now along with my education at India's premier technology institute - IIT Madras. This year of involvement with organization has really helped me to discover myself. Everytime when I interact with the kids from orphanages where we operate from and see their smile its an amazing experience. Celebrating festivals with them, playing sports with them, teaching them, etc. has been an unparalleled experience to me. Education is our main aim and we believe that these under-privileged kids are the future of India. From organization point of view things are very smooth and democratic, nobody is the boss or dictator here. Opinions of all active volunteers are taken before any major decision. This has led the organization to grow thick and fast, one of the examples of which is Bhumi getting highest number of volunteers among all NGOs in Chennai through Times of India's - Teach India Initiative. I love the organization's motto which we are closely following: "Change Today.. Change Tomorrow" , Bhumi is here to stay and make a long term change.

My name is Jaishree. I signed up as a volunteer with Bhumi as soon as I knew I could help in a productive way, with helping less privileged kids in the neighborhood. The first meet focused on our awareness, and we had a lot of instructions as to how, where, when, why our actions would influence the kids to behave better. What you see is what you get. Even if I had to relocate to another place soon after, it was great knowing people united toward a better cause/society and working proactively toward it.

I joined Bhumi by July'08. After i had registered they called me and had phone interview asking whether i would be in Chennai for nxt 1 year at least. That made me realize how serious they are and imm joined them. Bhumi has always been giving the best to students. The hardwork that goes on to prepare the syllabus is excellent. They plan to perfection and spend a lot of time in it. Bhumi takes care that the teachers don't get stagnate and constantly change sharing responsibilities with diff volunteers and arranging train the trainers program periodically. Off late I have been missing sessions and students. Hoping to be back to be with students and a proud Bhumian!!! Bhumi rocks and sets benchmarks for upcoming NGO's..

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

the most elite youngsters in Chennai having not just the will to win but also will to prepare. To be honest, Initially I didn't like Chennai cause I had a feel that most of them are struck to video games and computers.Bhumi proved me wrong.

Ways to make it better...

I had spared more time for the kids and Bhumi. I should have volunteered more for Bhumi's activities like Think Green, Career Counseling etc.., than just pertaining to engaging with kids i teach. In that way I could have given more and got back even more.

I am a proud member of Bhumi since november 2008..Little Einsteins was the program for which i was volunteering and it was an initiative to teach science for the secondary school kids.. The over all execution of the program was very well organized by weekly meetings, constant feedback from the volunteers as well as the school kids, periodic updates of the test taken by the kids along with their grades and performance and an orderly allocation of the volunteers for the days.. More than teaching, I got to learn a lot of things from the kids..their enthusiasm to learn new things, coming up with creative ideas and a cloud of curiosity around them was what made my experience a wonderful one..! Thank you Bhumi for giving me such an experience ....
