Review for Bhumi, Chennai, , India

Rating: 5 stars  

My experience with Bhumi has got only better over the last 5 years. I'm really happy to share that I belong to first set of volunteers who got officially inducted into the organisation. The platform which Bhumi has set for youngsters to give back to the society and attain holistic growth both personally and professionally is truly commendable. Having involved in most of the edu as well as annual projects of Bhumi, I can boldly say that Bhumi is one of the best professionally manged NGO in the world. And yes, we always take immense pride and happiness in calling ourselves "Bhumians" *Collars up* :)

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

Along with facilitating qualitative analysis of the work that we do in Bhumi, I would expand our presence to many more cities in India.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Review for Bhumi, Chennai, , India

Rating: 5 stars  

Its been more than a year... and still I wonder how i made it to BHUMI. Inspired by Dr.APJ's Vision 2020, I always wanted to do something useful for my society. Orkut came in handy in helping me out to find out the perfect destination - BHUMI. The democratic and transparent rules of this NGO really impressed me a lot.Among the various programs like kanini, MAD(teach English), Think green,Career counselling & little Einstein I preferred to volunteer for MAD. When I walked into the first day of my class for teaching english, I found lot of enthusiastic & energetic students, who had that interest to learn.But I was bit annoyed by the given syllabus as it contained too basic stuffs.Later We understood that these kids doesn't have the proper knowledge about the subject and need to be groomed effectively. Realizing the importance of the structured syllabus, the contents were scrutinized by the tech team.And now we are happy to listen some broken English from those kids, Which we consider as our first success. In the course of year,I found the sustainable-development in terms of programs, number of volunteers and achievements.This gives us some reason to rejoice. As our mission states, We the BHUMI volunteers are sacrificing our today to provide a better tomorrow!!!

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

Being a part of the responsible & active YOUTH organisation.

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

very dedicated and concerned about what they do.

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

be perfectly utilized in improving the standard of education of down trodden children.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
