With an aim to render quality education, Bhumi provides comprehensive educational support for over 25,000 underprivileged children across India. Bhumi bridges the gaps in formal education and opportunities by providing language and STEAM education, life-skills support, and scholarships for children in orphanages, urban slum communities and low-income (private and government) schools.
According to a survey by Annual Status of Education Report (ASER) - 2018, one-fourth of the country's youngsters in the 14-18 age group cannot read their own language fluently, while 57% of them struggle to solve a simple sum of division. Children residing in shelter homes/low-income communities are deprived of better employment opportunities and civic engagement due to inadequate quality in education and a dearth of role models to guide and mentor these under-privileged children.
Bhumi's supplementary education programme for under-privileged children consists of STEAM, Robotics, Mentoring, Arts, Sports and Life skills. It is delivered during weekends by over 2,000 trained volunteers. Most of our volunteers are working professionals under the age of 30 and go through mandatory orientation. They teach and mentor children living in slums, orphanages, and village community centres educating children for a better tomorrow. Over 25,000 children are benefiting from this program
In 2023, Bhumi aims to impact 1,00,000 children through 1,00,000 volunteers across 25 cities in India. While holistic education is imparted to the children, Bhumi's young volunteers are also transformed into socially conscious leaders in the education sector.
