I was a volunteer and I taught English more focused on spoken English for gals kids in an Govt gals school at purasavakkam on every Sunday. We were group of 10-12 volunteer who taught ard 50 kids at that school. Each volunteer had small group of kids so that we could help them better and we adopted many interactive, fun and easy learning methods which would help first generation English learners. I had amazing time teaching & learning from kids. BHUMI has been doing other projects addressing issues on climatic change, community development, teaching computers etc.. . On the whole BHUMI ROCKS and iam proud to be a Bhumian. :)

Bhumi is perhaps the best answer for Obama's "Yes We Can". It needs to be noted that this non profit organisation was started by a group of very determined young people way before we even got to know about the man. Though I have not been the most active member of this organisation, I am well aware that every child Bhumi helps comes with a story, a dream and hope that it would be realised. And Bhumi works towards it by providing what is considered the most elementary need: Education. At Bhumi, every volunteer is 100% there, provides the most down to earth care and makes the world of books and ink fun for the children. Hats off to you guys!

through teach india campaign when i first met bhumi, i was amazed with the list of projects done by bhumi. it was just an normal interaction with two volunteers. But the Bhumi induction program and the subsequent induction program for MAD(make a difference) was really good. It had lot of team games, presentation, experience sharing and most important it was a fully energised environment. I teach the kids of Anbu karangal home in trivanmayur,chennai every weekend. it is great experience to work with bhumi associates

It was after my 12th when I was wasting time doing nothing useful, my friend told me about this organisation.Teaching underprivileged kids English was great as i felt I was making at least a small change in their lives.Even if i have not helped them much, I have learnt a lot the past year teaching them. This is all thanks to Bhumi.

This is Raakesh T an Information security Professional; I have been with Bhumi for 1+ year taking care of the installation, troubleshooting of hardware and software's for computers of the project Kanini. Bhumi procured about 120 + systems from an MNC which are gradually inducted to Kanini. This academic year, i too joined the league of teaching members of Kanini. Doesn’t our society lack Visionaries and Mentors was the question in me and this pulled me into the journey of these lovely kids who are in par in intelligence to any other kid in our country, But they just lack the opportunity to expand their vista of knowledge for their life and career. Bhumian’s have significantly introduced some unexplored world to these kids to fill in those fissures and I am happy to be part of them. These days Education have become a serious business and this have widen the reach for the kids of this calibre. So Bhumi have been with various projects to shape their future. Projects like Kanini, Career Counselling, and MAD are some of them. The whole world is really concerned about the climate and many nation have even failed on talks on these issues and Bhumi doesn’t believe in board room talks on environment rather we toil ourselves planting trees under the shade of “Think Green” Project. Though I toiled myself only for 2 months, I am happy for the reason the tree is growing. Though our effort is a drop in an ocean, we believe the wave generated by the impact drop might widen things to the unreachable.
