Bhumi is a place that brings together people who are willing to learn-be it learning for organizing something or learning from having screwed up something. They are all highly motivated, good human beings and, above all, a very accepting bunch of people who will make anyone feel comfortable. No doubt they have a long way to go for which they will require opportunities, funding and support (which they are more than willing to embrace) but they are never short of imagination! This quality is both a good one (when done in the right amount) and a bad one (when done without accepting reality). Since learning is not a special exercise but a way of life for people at Bhumi (and questioning is the medium of learning), one might find them confused, unclear or uncertain at times because they question everything (including themselves) quite often. But, they often find a way because of their persistence. And I hope they realize that finding a way is not enough in the long run. Finding the 'right way' is crucial at times too. They seem to be doing the right things and going in the right direction though. Finally, I wish I had more interaction with people at Bhumi because my association is limited to a few meetings (so please take these comments with a pinch of salt) with them for reasons that are beyond the present scope. If you can imagine and be enthusiastic about making a difference, Bhumi will definitely aid in your growth.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

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

very good human beings willing to learn and grow while causing a change in the society.

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

give physical shape to it's wonderful dreams.

Ways to make it better...

I were more involved with them.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

man power and lack of funds.

One thing I'd also say is that...

they need to internalize critical thinking.

Incredible organisation, with an inspiring leader. One of the most impressive TRANSFORMATIONAL organisations in the world. I was lucky to see some of their work in Hyderabad first hand.

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

to see the passion, the dedication, the glint in the eye of everyone involved. It has an unbelievable impact on anyone whose lives it touches.
