Its all started when I heard about the orginization through a friend. Soon I became interested as the organization is helping the poor students in gaining computer knowledge, which make the orgnization unique among others. Most of the volenteers of the organization were IT professionals. Despite their work pressure, they are helping and involving in the social activities, which made me to wonder about them. These people are teaching the students to "Catch the Fist" rather than providing the fist. I wish I should be a part of it. But bcos of the circumstances I am just able to contribute the organization towards the financial need. With these kind of organization we can make an India of our dream. Jai Hind

There is a little 'good guy' inside all of us who keeps telling us that we should do good things and help people. Everytime we do even a small thing for the betterment of others, he comes out gives us a pat and makes us feel so good about it. Let me just say that since I got associated with Bhumi, the little 'good guy' has grown in stature and size. We all wish to do something to give back to the community, we all try to be selfless and lovable - The Bhumi team personifies all this. I thank the team for taking me in to help in a small way and I am sure this group is going to make a difference to a lot of people.

I've never volunteered in the literal sense - going about teaching like the others - never. However, I strongly commend and applaud what the other volunteers are doing for the society, for the children, for India. I've known some of the founding members since childhood, and I'm not saying this just because they're my friends/family - it amazes me to see in someone so young, the maturity and longing to give back to a deserving group of children. I could never do that despite having the passion. What with all the time constraints and "priorities" in life. This group deserves international acclaim and recognition. And I shall always continue my support in whatever way possible that is within my threshold.
