About the Program
Eco-Champs is an environment sensitisation program to empower students to become proactive practitioners of eco-friendly lifestyle through an immersive and hands-on experience spanned across 5 months.
The program also builds 21st-century life skills including compassion, teamwork, critical thinking and problem-solving in the children to enable change in their communities.
The program has impacted 22 schools in Chennai to become eco-friendly campuses and mentored 2700+ students to become eco-conscious. To read more about the impact, feel free to browse our Annual Report
With Season 3, we look forward to sprouting the program virtually in every city, school and home with our revamped model to create thousands of eco-champs!

Bhumi is one of India’s largest independent and youth volunteer non-profit organisations.
Bhumi was founded on August 15, 2006 by a small group of friends with a strong passion to change society today and build a better India for tomorrow. The organisation provides youngsters a platform to serve the society and bridges the gap between the educated and the uneducated.
Our volunteers educate and mentor children from orphanages, slum and village community centres across the country to give them a better future, which will benefit them as well as our country. The learning experience is mutual – our volunteers gain perspective and the experience to mould themselves into tomorrow’s leaders.
