  • We would like to thank all of our supporters for their generous contribution made towards the Service Vehicle Project.

  • We now have a Service Vehicle that has made it very convenient for us to travel to distant villages within a short span of time.

  • We are now able to carry supplies and all other necessities in just one trip.

  • This has made the villages a lot more accessible to us. We hope to make optimum use of the Service Vehicle for all Aham Bhumika initiatives.

  • We've been supporting village Anganwadi centers (kindergaten) by distributing clothes and books, this time we went a step further and distributed toys.

  • Around thirty two toys were distributed to children of the village Aanganwadi centre of village Mahabadiya, Kolar Road, Bhopal (situated nearly 17 kms from the heart of the city Bhopal).

  • The Embroidery Project is a small yet meaningful endeavor of Ahambhumika wherein a small group of rural women and girls living on the outskirts of Bhopal are trained in hand embroidery work.

  • The women and girls trained belong to the lowest income stratum of the community.

  • Currently, they are being taught to master Gond Art embroidery, which is a tribal art form of central India.

  • Aims to turn this severely under-resourced section of the society into a self- reliant one.

Kunti and Laxmi both are sister. I met them last Saturday ( 02.05.12) sitting outside of our informal literacy centre in the village Mahabadia, Bhopal. I was told that they were left by their mother few days ago to a distant relative in the village on their mercy.
Kunti is 12+ years old while her younger sister Laxmi is 8+years old. Their parents have 6 children (4 girl and 2 son).Father who is a regular drunkard beats her wife and children regularly without any reason like every useless Indian who used to show their muscle power to the woman.

AhamBhumika ran its first Summer camp in a little village called Bodako in Bhopal. Aham Bhumika is run by the energetic Subrat Goswami, Devendra Singh and Mukul. The local volunteers were Deepa, Kavita Bhattacharya and Rupa Goswami. The other out-of-town volunteer was Aditya Arya. I decided to take part on a whim. Subrat's every tweet was calling me to Bodako : )
Little did I know it would end up being the experience that it was! We got a feel of the terrain a day before the camp. The first sight that greeted us was of children carrying water on their little heads.

With daily media reports on Indian economy leaping with a net growth of 8% GDP every year, one is bound to feel good that our country is on the path to peace, harmony and progress. So many graduates are moving to big cities to find lucrative jobs in ever-expanding Indian market.
Big international companies are setting their plant on Indian land bringing money and employment both in India. Despite all these reports, we often ignore the plight of poor which still constitutes a major chunk of our population.

Jawaharlal Nehru had once said-"Educate a man and you educate one person. Educate a woman and you educate the whole family." Female Education in India is not a gift of modern civilization.
In olden days women excelled in the sphere of education and hence the goddess of learning was conceived of as a female who was popularly known as "Saraswati". The traditional value of girl education in India was to enable her to be more competent in running the household, especially motherhood and to be able to give children a better upbringing.

There are many pre-conceived notions related to volunteering and social networking among us. We think that volunteering can be only done by going to the NGO. But volunteering goes beyond our physical presence. Commitment has no boundaries.
We think that Social networking is just for sharing photos that we took from our recent Goa trip. But a person named Shawn Ahmed (he goes by the handle @uncultured on twitter) creates awareness and funds through social media and recently, due to his efforts he was invited to Davos.
