Hi All, Am Part of a leading MNC in Chennai. When we were thinking about sending volunteers from our organization to the needy schools for taking session/classes, the only thought came to us was 'BHUMI'. Volunteers from BHUMI trained my colleagues right from preparing the course content till the way we need to handle the children. It was really a amazing experience that we had with 'BHUMI'. Would always like to watch it growing Bigger n Stronger..
