Bhumi Foundation, India

You may build a kingdom out of military weaponry, maybe flexing the muscle powers also can get one land or one may play their political cards right to get the people by their side but that doesn’t make your country worth dwelling in. A country if not enlightened in the light of education is synonymous to a dark room with claustrophobic ambience, a country where there is no systematic coordination between the environment and the human folk, where different forms of life doesn’t coexist in the same rhythm, that society can never trace the trajectory of prosperity, growth and holistic contentment.
India as rightly said , one of the most progressing country, what makes the same is that India’s constant approach to eradicate lack of education and a boosted contribution to promote education amongst the major masses backed by which we are sailing in the ship of progress. Its predicted that by 2030 India would be able to eradicate most of the country’s poverty issues, things may not have taken an escalated turn if and only if the government have been bringing the change, joining hands with them are the groups of people like Bhumi Foundation, it’s the result of their day and nights toil that has given things such swift turn around.
Bhumi is one of India’s largest independent and youth volunteer non-profit organisations. Bhumi was founded on August 15, 2006 by a small group of friends with a strong passion to change society today and build a better India for tomorrow.
