“When You Know Better, You Do Better.”

– Maya Angelou; American Author and Poet

Donor-funded and volunteer driven NGO Ahambhumika has been instrumental in providing basics of education to the lowest strata of rural poor in and around Bhopal. It has sensed the need among this denied section of society in Mahabadia and Bodakho, for knowledge of alphabets and numbers that will enable them to read, write and know if they received the right wages for their work; hygiene that will give them better health, clothes that protect their bodies and dignity and above all it has offered them hope of a better tomorrow, possibly holding out the promise of fitting into the mainstream social strata.

However, it is time Ahambhumika looked beyond stationary, books, footwear and the like which are regularly donated by charitable persons every month to keep the movement going. It is time the NGO also addressed issues of formal and regular learning through providers of the education to those who are keen and willing to learn. You would be surprised at the numbers of children who are eager to learn the formal subjects as we know them and see them as a rope to climb out of their miserable present.

For this we need educators who will volunteer to come from Bhopal city on a daily/weekly basis to impart training to the enthusiastic children. We at Ahambhumika know that for many of us, passion runs limited mileage and so to get honest work done on a consistent basis, these volunteers will have to be paid as they would had they taught at a school elsewhere.

Currently we undertake to impart education to the children for a period of 2 years and are seeking teachers who are passionate about this cause and can commit to teaching the underprivileged but bright students for this length of time. Being donor-funded a project, Ahambhumika will not be matching market rates on teacher salaries but is looking at a monthly payment of Rs. 10,000 per teacher., an amount we consider sufficient for our location and enough to fuel a person’s motivation at teaching.

The aforesaid project is ready to take wings in the forthcoming academic session commencing July 2013.
Needless to say the success of this program will depend on Ahambhumika’s capability of sourcing funds from donors and charitable persons. As is evident our endeavor will be to raise Rs. 120,000 per annum (i.e. 10,000 x 12 = Rs 120,000) towards 1 teacher or Rs. 10,000 a month to afford educating the rural have-nots. Ahambhumika is committed to supplying details of funds and sources to donors from time to time.

Plea For Funds For Hiring and Retaining A Teacher:

• Requesting a minimum donation of Rs. 5000 from charitable individuals.

• Donations can also be made for Rs. 10,000 or for the whole year for Rs. 120,000.

• Requests are also going out to those who live outside of India (NRIs) but are citizens of India.


• Ahambhumika will send the banking details and profile to you upon expression of your consent to donate.
