Case Studies:

Quarnival, an online festival for children from orphanages and shelter homes conceptualised & organised by the Pune chapter. It was a classic display of Bhumi’s values empathising with our children, proactively setting up the event to nurture the talent in our children during the quarantine. This event helped showcase their talent and boost their self-confidence. This event was a blessing in disguise for some kids to recover from the stress & anxiety caused by the pandemic.

Inspired by this idea, the REFRESH team improvised it to create Nakshatra Online. This idea further built on the values of volunteerism, activating teams across India who co-owned the event and Continuous Improvement with each event building on the learnings of the previous event and scaling to reach greater heights.

Further to create a platform for over 2,000 children across all 28 states of India, this platform also opened doors for the children from tier 2, tier 3 cities, towns which earlier didn’t have our presence and reach. This is further paving way for Ignite Online reaching many new centres, it all started with an idea from the Pune Chapter.

Mohan Karthik, one of the youngest volunteers of COVID Support team (Studies in Class 11!) came up with an idea to conduct a virtual run to raise funds for the people affected by the pandemic. It started with him empathising with the beneficiaries he was calling, proactively planning the event and presenting it to the REFRESH NST.

While we have been organising Bhumi India Run since 2017 the team validated the idea through a survey to decide about the event. Multiple teams for promotions & participants engagement with the involvement of over 200 volunteers across all major chapters. The team not only leveraged Volunteerism but in a spirit of Continuous Improvement reached out marketing experts to improve ideas achieving 10x PR & Fundraising.
