Joining such a great organization gave me an immense satisfaction. Really, to work for poor children who can't afford education,who can't have few moments of happiness & affection, those who never knew how birthdays are being celebrated,what is the taste of exorbitant pizza & what is that amazing thing called as " video"game.Those ,who could have spend their life fetching rags from the slum of pudupet(Chennai's biggest slum)or running behind the cars just in the meager hope of getting few bucks for bread... If a group of people are working to bring smile on faces of these people whose rolling tears are even dried on their cheek, for me it's great to be part of them. whether its about educating these children , organizing an annual inter-orphanage cultural fest (which is in NOV.09) or adopting public parks for development "BHUMI", YOU ARE ALWAYS THERE to make the difference to evaporate the discrimination from the society. JAI BHUMI, JAI BHARAT.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

VERY FRIENDLY NATURE OF ALL BHUMIANS WHICH ENCOURAGES EVERYBODY TO GIVE THEIR BEST FOR DEVELOPMENT OF SOCIETY.

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

friendly , dedicated, committed & a good human being above all.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

have established few good schools in those areas where poor people have no option for educating their children.

I love the way they have devised the Teach India Program where the kids are getting educated. Its one of the best. Apart from this Bhumi is simply great because they are not narrow minded, thinking only about serious issues for the students, but also bringing laughter to their lives by organizing events like the Siragugal, where we do sports days and annual days for the kids.

I had a very good experience since i joined Bhumi. This organization has trained me how to teach the underpriviledged children with basic english. I am able to easily teach them due to the training Bhumi gave me also the system of saturday and sunday batch volunteers proves to be very convinient for teaching times. Career counselling is a very great experience so far. Since it targets the higher level students like 12th std it is very useful for the students. I feel some positive energy inside me every time i motivate the children with the various PPTs shared by various other volunteers of Bhumi. In short this is a very structured organization with abundant potential to train us the best and facilated us the best to teach the underpriviledged children. I feel very proud, self contended and satisfied as a Bhumian.

Bhumi is a bunch of extremely motivated individuals working for a common cause. I was impressed as well as ashamed by seeing them do their job with a kind of commitment that is rarely observed. One that does not deter with time. I purchased a few of their cloth bags and spread the news to friends of mine in other cities. I can proudly say that because of bhumi, there are atleast a hundred people who do not use plastic like they used to. I wish them the very best.

My experience with Bhumi cant be expressed with words at all. I first joined Bhumi through TOI, and my first day with Bhumi was on Diwali celebrations in one Orphanage. I still cant forget the happiness these kids had when we celebrated Diwali. I was also involved in Career counselling of the kids and also in the sports and Cultural event Siragugal.

In Chennai this is one of the best organizations that helps in establish such a close relationship with kids very frequently. The organization does a lot of work but never boasts. The organization and its volunteers deserve a proper recognition as most of BHUMI volunteers give importance to BHUMI and kids equivalent to their career.

I have worked as a volunteer, multiple times with different organisations for brief periods..But the joy and satisfaction I get from working with Bhumi is multi-fold. My role with Bhumi is as a volunteer, teaching English to 5th Std students. I have never till today experienced so much joy in goin to school! The sheer pleasure and satisfaction recieved from being with the children is an unforgettable experience. What makes me proud is when I see the students showing so much interest in what we teach and are so happy to attend these classes. This to me is the biggest achievement for Bhumi. At Bhumi we emphasize more on teaching with a fun approach and make sure that all our volunteers are of a young age. Beacuse of these two points, I think we connect with the students on a much higher level, as they can relate to us in a better way. Through Bhumi, Ive made so many good friends, that we make it a point to atleast meet once in a week! All in all, this is a fabulous Ngo, doing amazing work, making a huge difference to so many lives and Im glad to be part of it.

Our earth(bhumi) should be proud to have this BHUMI within it. I am really happy tat I am one of the volunteer of this.It has the young and enthusiastic volunteers with it. Really we can find how young people contribute for our nation through this. In this fast moving world the people mainly from corporate world spending their time for social activities is something really great and appreciable. As our ex-president Dr.Kalam sir said India's future is really in the hands of young people like here.If you once join bhumi never you will like to get out of this. I think bhumi is like my another house where I spend my weekends. Exactly I am not teaching rather I learn alot here. I can find my school days back here in BHUMI. Really I am proud to be in BHUMI. Proud to be a BHUMIAN. I wish BHUMI should be expanded all over India soon.
