We all tell stories about our lives don’t we? You know, how we got excited about doing something, like rock climbing, or gardening or learning pottery, or learning to play the flute or reading literature or something else that inspires you, and how doing that thing brought you amazing joy?
Well! BHUMI also has a similar story. Back in 2005 a group of young people got inspired to change the world around them into a better place. The journey started with adopting a government school in a slum in Hyderabad and committing to making education more interesting for its children. And needless to say we have been having a ball doing what inspires us! A lot more people have joined this journey and others have moved on to pursue other things that have touched and inspired them. Over the last four years Bhumi has been through a very interesting journey of discovering itself and concretising its purpose into a vision, plans, projects and actions. We have come so much closer to defining what we want to do as a professional organisation and how we want to do it. We are going to be using this space in the first few editions to re-introduce you to Bhumi. Its vision, mission, values, its leadership development model, bhumiisms (meanings to words we use at Bhumi, the way we use them), our developmental initiatives and our take on several situations in the world around us.
BHUMI is a centre for leadership excellence. We believe competent leadership across all spectrums of society is critical to achieving inclusive and sustainable development.
The challenges facing humanity require solutions that match complexity and intricacy of the problems. Bhumi supports individuals who seek to craft and execute solutions across five domains viz., 1.Education, 2.Livelihoods, 3.Health care, 4.Water, Environment & Sanitation, 5.Governance and Democracy. These solutions embody multi-stakeholder collaborations which involve the communities they are crafted for.
