Under the leadership of Mrs Trupti Desai and Mr Prashant Desai, Bhumata Foundation was established in 2010 in Pune and since then is dedicated to bringing a change in society. The name of our organization “Bhumata” invokes Earth goddesses. However, the organization does not limit itself to members of only the Hindu religion. The objective of the organization is to promote and perform various welfare activities in the field of women empowerment, education, health, medical and wellness, sports and culture, youth empowerment, rural development, and the environment.
We became well known at the national level in our cause for women equality through the Shani Shingnapur temple entry agitation. Our director Mrs. Trupti Desai chose this temple because she believes equality comes to that place through the opening of doors of the temple for women. Since then more than 20,000 volunteers have served humanity in Maharashtra, Delhi, Karnataka, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, and Rajasthan.
