Tsunami rehabilitation efforts
Using a holistic approach, Bhoomika Trust worked towards rehabilitation of families affected and displaced by the tsunami. The Trust was involved in rehabilitation efforts with partner NGOs in the areas of education, children's activities support, livelihood restoration, health, psychosocial support and habitat restoration.

Education related support
Many students of economically weaker sections lack adequate assistance and supervision at home; in addition, financial constraints often do not allow them to seek after school tuition.
