“In every community there is work to be done. In every nation, there are wounds to heal. In every heart there is the power to do it.”

~ Marianne Williamson

 

Why

A large number of Indians have been living in slums for years, with little or no access to basic amenities. To improve the quality of life of people from this section of society, it is essential to identify the problems they face. BHUMI, through its community development project, reaches out to slum dwellers by establishing a bond with children with a view to communicate the importance of addressing the basic yet critical issues they face.

 

How

Through constant interaction with slum dwellers, BHUMI emphasises the importance of:

-          Cleanliness and protecting their families from illness.

-          Education and its benefits to the family.

-          Values to children, conveyed by the means of storytelling and other activities.
