“When I was born, I didn't know that life is a struggle starting with the pain of the woman who bore me….
And I grew to discover that life is indeed a struggle…
I discovered that life is a struggle to 'Be‘…
To Be honest to my dreams. To Be responsible to my kin & my country men….
Life is a struggle to be MORE…Life is a struggle to RISE to happiness”

The Fellows at Bhumi, in association with JSS, have facilitated the enrolment of 50 women from the community to undergo Vocational Training Courses in Tailoring & Jute Craft. Currently they are looking out for opportunities to enable income generation for these women through exhibiting their products for sale, inviting small scale orders etc.
The women are trained to make a host of products that include Small, medium & large multi-purpose jute bags, Cloth bags for carrying groceries, Jute water bottle carriers, mobile covers made of Jute & cloth, Table mats & glass covers made of jute etc.
Soon these women will also be trained in mangement skills & social entrepreneurship that will help them to set up their own business units within the community that will go on to create opportunites for many more women.

Project: Curriculum development for Play School/Bridge School
Background: The Government schools in the community do not provide elementary education thus making it difficult for the children to learn quickly. This results in a lot of children dropping out in their early classes itself. In order to address this challenge, the Fellows have started a play school which caters to children from the community aged between 3 - 6years and aims at educating (oral & written) the kids in fundamentals of English (alphabets, rhymes etc) & Math (numbers). By far, the school has been managed by individuals from the community, who have passed their Xth standard but are not professionally trained in teaching elementary education. While on the other hand, bridge school caters to children from the community aged between 8 - 12 years & who have dropped out from school for various reasons. The objective is to bridge the gap of the lost academic years and train them to join higher classes.
Project Description: Broad tasks include, but are not restrcited to, the following -
