Bhoomika Trust Bhoomika Trust was set up in February 2001 and its main focus is to support the educational and livelihood needs of underprivileged individuals.

Bhoomika and Education
Bhoomika Trust believes in making focused interventions in the area of education. The assistance goes beyond funding as the Trust sees its involvement more as a "mentor". It keeps in touch with the students on a regular basis providing guidance, as necessary. Periodic evaluation of the students' performance and progress is done.

Bhoomika in Gujarat
Immediately after the Gujarat earthquake of 2001, Bhoomika Trust coordinated relief supplies from Chennai and dispatched ration kits to provide basic sustenance for a month for families in the earthquake affected areas. The Trust also supported a medical team from Chennai, which went to Gujarat to perform corrective orthopedic surgeries.

Members of Bhoomika Trust visited earthquake affected areas of Gujarat. With the help of two local organizations - Anarde Foundation and Kutch Nav Nirman Abhiyan, the Trust identified individuals who had lost their means of livelihood and provided seed capital to help restart their business.

Bhoomika and Tsunami
Bhoomika Trust has been involved in coordinating relief and rehabilitation efforts and in facilitating information exchange among NGOs, corporates, community - based groups, and the Tamil Nadu Government. Currently Bhoomika Trust is involved in rehabilitation efforts with partner NGOs in the areas of education, children's activities support, livelihood restoration, health, psychosocial support and habitat restoration.
