Organization Description

Bhumi is a Development Institution which took shape because of a sense of disillusionment with the present leadership of the nation and the state of affairs in our country.

It is a group of like-minded Young Indians who have come together to forge this institution. Bhumi strives to evolve creative and cost effective solutions to the complex socio-economic problems of this nation and, in the process, groom next generation leaders of our country. Our work is presently restricted to our first test bed – Rasoolpura Slum in Hyderabad.

Our development model works on four specific domains to deliver Holistic and Sustainable Transformation.
Our domains are
– Education
– Livelihood
– Health Care
– Water, Environment and Sanitation.

Interventions in the above mentioned domains will be designed to deliver a better quality of life to the communities we work with. Since its inception in 2006, Bhumi has started several initiatives in the aforementioned domains and partnered with numerous other NGOs to mobilize resources to achieve their goals. Their “Freedom Construction “ initiative, helped by 150 volunteers from various walks of life has helped rebuild the Government school in Rasoolpura slums of Hyderabad. At the stroke of mid night on 15th August, an old dilapidated school building was brought down, the school grounds were cleared of garbage and filth, the rubble was used to level the school play ground. Bhumi has also organized several health camps, mentorship programs, livelihood programs at different locations -
