THE majority of Class 5 students at state schools can read text meant for just Class 2, and by Class 8, division problems elude most pupils. It is this learning gap between the haves and have-nots that Ignite is trying to bridge, run by Bhumi trained volunteer networks in over 11 cities. Rs 500 would help educate a child for a year, Rs 3,000 will train 50 volunteer teachers and Rs 13,000 would fetch a new computer for the kids. Plus, committed volunteers under 30 are always welcome.
A MONTH after the devastating Chennai floods in December 2014 left the city’s beaches covered in garbage, 274 volunteers from Bhumi and other organisations joined the NDTV Banega Swachh India telethon and removed an 1.8tonnes of rubbish from one beach. This is the kind of civic initiative – which inspired more citizen-led beach cleanathons – that comes under their Catalyse project. Bhumi are seeking Campus Catalysts – college goers to spread the word about the value of volunteerism.
Bhumi is the best platform for anyone willing to serve society as it gives both the guidance and the freedom to create an impact on children.
Volunteering with Bhumi brought great changes within me - my perspective has broadened and I’ve become a more positive, idealistic and strong person.
Children love all the volunteers who teach them with love and affection. Every week they eagerly wait for Bhumi classes. The main strong point about Bhumi is their commitment and consistency towards the cause.
Bhumi is a unique and strong youth volunteer driven organisation, which is thoroughly professionally run and deeply committed to creating a prosperous and proud India by investing in our children and youth, the torch-bearers of the future.
