Joining Bhumi had been one of the life changing experiences for me. I started up as a volunteer and got more involved as a coordinator after an year. The key differentating aspect of Bhumi is that it has something for everyone. For people who could give an year-long commitment and interested in teaching, there are a number of teaching options. For those who are uncertain of their commitment timings, short term volunteering options such as event coordination is available. Bhumi had also been a platform and helped realise a few volunteer ideas into full scale projects and that's something very special. The time with Bhumi for me has been really great and I'm looking forward for a lot more of it!

Bhumi , in the vernacular language means "world", and is indeed a little world of its own! My one year association with Bhumi has drastically changed the way at look at others, my society and at myself. As a volunteering platform that encourages people to share love by doing what do what they love to do, i presume that this is one important factor for bhumi having such a strong volunteer base, and even with such high number of volunteers with varied thoughts, it has been able to keep all things organised. So if u were one, in the pursuit of - wider horizons, a contentful life, handful of people to mentor and motivate you, and looking up on opportunities to little-by-little develop a better tomorrow, bhumi could be ur best hit. But beware, the unconditional love of our little kids could leave you awestruck.. And the enthusiasm of the volunteers here are very much contagious :P !!


As in the case of many Bhumians out here, there are highchances that ur " pleasure of volunteering" could transform to a "passion" then!!

Bhumi - The best thing in my life!!!

I started to volunteer for Bhumi from 2014 and that was the best thing that I did ever in my life. Bhumi primarily focuses on supplementary education to the under privileged children. And also it supports all other possible work to make a change in this society.

Volunteering at Bhumi has always been not only giving something to the society, it has been also learning a lot of things. Yes!! Bhumi is also a platform for every volunteers to improve their skills in many aspects.

I had the great privilege to volunteer for Bhumi chapter in Kolkata. Initially I volunteered short term with them on "Joy to the World" . I was blown away at the incredible work the were doing, the kind of impact they created in terms of actual change. The commitment of the Chennai Volunteers was Inspiring, most were volunteering along with their regular jobs. I decided I wanted to volunteer for them and now even though I am not a full time volunteer I know I will always be there for Bhumi.
Bhumi believes in bringing real change in education system, I believe in the structure of Bhumi, of facilitating education during weekends by young college students and professionals. Its a two way exchange of values and I can say with confidence, the experience brings in more Integrity and Authenticity in the Volunteers.

I have been associated with Bhumi for more than a year now. I cherish every moment with Bhumi. It has given me an opportunity to do what i have always wanted to do. A platform to help out children who need it the most. I am helping out more volunteers to help out as many children as possible. Bhumi is driven almost entirely by volunteers, and for a pan India non profit organisation to work, the volunteers need to be self motivated.This self motivation only comes when we have an organisation like Bhumi. Three cheers for Bhumi!

Bhumi - NGO ! One of the most beautiful part of my life :)
Bhumi is amalgamation of everything in life.
Learning, childhood, fun, helping, mentoring, future, social, environment, leaders, love, family, friends, dreams, daring, caring and all things !

Going by my personal experience of being an introvert and now getting recognised for my people skills has been great.

Its an platform where the volunteers gives in completely to the cause and receives double in return. Be it in form of fun, experience or the learning for the lifetime.
I believe its privilege and lucky to be a volunteer.

Volunteering has become a hobby and a passion !

Been volunteering since past 4 years. Not a dull moment and more than I could teach the latest ds they taught me a lot in return. This experience has been life changing... And I cannot thank enough everybody associated with it. It's a mega network of volunteers fastened together by common interests and Bhumi employees at the same time. Always full of help and advices, suggestions to the volunteers that seek. Plus ample opportunities within to explore one's own potential to the fullest!!

Do you want to be "a part" of change or "a driver" of change? The choice is yours!

...If you have a vision for a sustainable community and possess an unquenchable thirst to convert your vision to reality, BHUMI offers you the platform!...The platform to "drive" your vision and create a communal impact! With a wide array of basic subjects to ignite the flame of literacy amongst the unprivileged kids, I chose to teach Computers and was able to reach out to some of the most isolated corners of our social framework ...and let me tell you the experience has indeed been rewarding! Strong systems are in place to promote volunteerism, cover more and more areas and centres by expanding operations year-on-year, and hone not only the unexplored talent in our kids but also the "leader" in our volunteers.

It is just 30 months from the time, I joined Bhumi, but, today, when I turn back, I could just Mark my life as Before Bhumi and After Bhumi... :) A lot of experiences, a lot of friends, a lot of unforgettable moments...!... A positive catalyst that brought in a constructive change in me, through many angels in here, through their experiences and much more.. :) ...

We don't have to be great to start, We have to start to be great...!!!... One of the best things I ever did in my life was that, that day, August 18th, I visited Nakshatra '12 (an inter home festival conducted by Bhumi) as a visitor. And then, there my eyes sent a fastest message to my brain seeing an ample number of youngsters fully involved in bringing smiles to the faces of those children. And from there, my brain forwarded the message to my heart and on that same day, as soon as I reached home, Googled for BHUMI registering on it and received a SMS saying there was a n orientation, and that day, NOVEMBER 12th 2012, was change over and turning point...!!!... That day, my heart was just fulfilled with joy of happiness !!!.... And starting up in the JOY TO THE WORLD project, I was really lucky to see and experience a lot of smiles and happiness of many kids of God. This is the best thing which I think, every human should experience...!!!... Then there I chose LAKSHYA(dream/goal) a project that, leads the dreams and shows the paths of life to a kid.... Starting from then, I m in Lakshya still experiencing a lot of things...!!!... :)

The best thing about bhumi is that, the transparency and it is one place which benefits the whole society, both the kids and the volunteers..!!!... I have gained a lot...!!!... Can also divide my life as Life Before Bhumi and Life After Bhumi...!!!!.... CHANGE TODAY, CHANGE TOMORROW.... An apt motto...!!!... :)

A cause is all that matters for all the works you do. I found how it should look like after volunteering with bhumi. A satisfaction, impact, understanding,meaning, sustainability, efficiency i have understood how to add it in everything i do. Most of all doing everything with a smile, no actually a laugh... laughters... a roaring fun. Its going to be 2 years now but it has made me learn more than the decade i spent in classrooms.

Bhumi, the best thing that happened to me. I had always wanted to help the underprivileged children but was clueless about "how". Bhumi provides us with a great opportunity to connect with kids and help them as well as ourselves while volunteering. My journey in bhumi, till now (2 years) has been nothing but fulfilling. It also helps us get connected to like minded people, providing room for discussion , innovation and improvement for the causes we work for. Happy volunteering :D

Bhumi is one of the best things that happened in my life. The best stage I got to lend a helping hand to the under-privileged. Most of the children undergoing this programme turn out succssfull. It helped me realize my own worth and in many cases, it made me grow as a person. The amount of pleasure I gain during each minute when i do some bhumi task is priceless. Thaks to Bhumi for helping me to give the kids the best ever possible gift, the of education. I am thankful to bhumi for whatever it has done to the society as well as myself.
