Description The Police Boys Clubs are essentially a group of character building cells providing guidance to the youth from slums and economically weaker sections. The objective of these Clubs is to guide and encourage children in their adolescence who lack parental attention and care. These children mainly from the under privileged sections of the society, are given opportunities for learning, recreation and skill cultivation. These inputs help them to develop into healthy citizens of the society and prevent them from drifting towards crime and deviant behaviour. The location of the Boys Clubs is mainly in slum areas. Every Boys Club has a Scout Master, who is in charge of running the day-to-day affair of the Club. Each Boys Club has facilities for sports, library, recreation and opportunities for vocational training. Efforts are also made to assist these children to pursue higher studies and later gainful employment. At Kuyil Thottam, Bhumika Trust are working towards providing the children from the community an opportunity to play, express their creativity, learn and channelise their energy in a positive manner. Around 20 children come regularly to the centre which became functional in December 2011. Children are in the age group of 10-18 years but there are a few children in the 5-10 years age group also. Majority of them are boys but there are a few girls in the 5-10 age group. Most of the children go to nearby schools English/Tamil medium) and there are one or two drop outs also. Probable areas of volunteer support: Arts/crafts/drawing/painting/dancing/music/theatre, people to play and give tips on chess/caroms, academics tutoring(Math, Physics, Chem and Accountancy), quizzing etc
