COLLABORATION WITH BHUMI FOUNDATION
Agni foundation collaborated with Bhumi Foundation this year 2016 for a noble cause and organized a one day carnival for underprivileged kids. Agni Foundation provided the venue for organizing Bhumi's annual flagship event - Nakshatra, which was held in the Agni College of Technology.
Nakshatra is Bhumi’s annual national talent festival in arts and sports for children from orphanages.
It is a platform for the children to ‘Dream’, exhibit their talents, get competitive exposure, ‘Discover’ their potential, ‘Dazzle’ in an atmosphere of healthy competition and enrich themselves with much needed perspective about their inherent potentials.
It is to improve the self-confidence of children, contribute to their holistic development through promotion of extra-curricular activities.
Nakshatra Reach Out programme
Nakshatra Reach Out consists of competitions at children’s homes before Nakshatra and a year-long talent development programme including workshops and structured sessions. The talent festival has an array of competitive activities to ensure that children of all age groups from children’s homes participate and gain immensely from competing against their peers.
50 different competitions in arts – including flower arrangement, pot painting, clay modelling, elocution, dance, song etc and athletic and sporting competitions like sprint, high jump, shot put, volley ball, chess etc are conducted to facilitate maximum talent discovery. The event is peppered with entertainment, games, workshops and a science exhibition to keep the children busy even while they were not competing. The Bhumi's annual flagship event – Nakshatra, 2016 was a successful event, in which Agni Foundation for the first time collaborated and joined hands with Bhumi Foundation for the noble cause in spreading happiness among the orphans.
