Challenge

The educational sector in India has seen a rapid yet unequal growth. Children in orphanages, slums and village communities continue to have a little access to quality education. They go to schools that lack basic infrastructure or quality teachers. They predominantly undergo a vernacular medium of education where English is just another subject with little or very little focus on communication and life skills. Also, their conceptual understanding of Mathematics and Science are poor.

Solution

Bhumi's supplementary education programmes through our trained volunteers will educate the children in English, Mathematics, Science and Computers. The programmes are fun-filled and interactive. Apart from mentoring children, Bhumi also ensures the extracurricular talents of children are identified and nurtured. The programme happens during the weekends when both the volunteers and the children have free time.

Long-Term Impact

The project will benefit 15,000 children in 2014-2015 through 1,500 volunteers in ten cities across India. Within the next six years, Bhumi will be able to reach out to 100,000 children in fifty cities through 10,000 volunteers. While holistic education is imparted to the children, Bhumi's young volunteers are also transformed into socially conscious leaders in the education sector.
