After completing his studies in 2016, he joined the Leadership Development Programme at The Global Education & Leadership Foundation (tGELF) where he co-founded, project managed and was the spokesperson for, Global Citizen India, a citizen-driven movement to end extreme poverty in India by 2030. The Times of India quoted, ‘The Global Citizen India movement is uniquely positioned to galvanise support from our 800 million young people on the issues that matter, to us and to future generations, which are key to tackling the challenges the world faces.’<ref>{{Cite web|url=https://www.indiatoday.in/lifestyle/music/story/coldplay-mumbai-concert-global-citizen-festival-bhavya-bishnoi-tgelf-lifest-352744-2016-11-18|title=Global Citizen Festival: 4 young guns adding meaning to country's biggest-ever concert|last=November 18|first=Mini Dixit|last2=November 19|first2=2016UPDATED:|website=India Today|language=en|access-date=2018-12-19|last3=Ist|first3=2016 02:14}}</ref>
At tGELF, Bhavya launched a movement named Shuruaat Bus, in order to identify and guide young entrepreneurs of India. In partnership with Facebook and Apollo Tyres, the Shuruaat Bus travelled through several cities, including Jaipur, Pune, Lucknow, and Hyderabad - inviting young minds to implement their ideas and make a scalable impact. Winners were offered an opportunity to receive mentorship and support from leading entrepreneurs, investors, and government leaders.
In October 2017, Bhavya founded Bhajan Global Impact Foundation (BGIF) named after and inspired by the lifeworks of his grandfather, Ch. Bhajan Lal. It is a think-and-do-tank established to tackle key development challenges in Haryana through evidence-based, solution-oriented policy design and impact intervention. So far, BGIF has taken up initiatives aimed at women empowerment (Mushkilon Se Muskaan Tak and Haq Rakshak), solid waste management (Hansi Swachhata Andolan), education (Bhajan Lal Scholarship), and environmental conservation (Planting the Seeds of Change), among others.
Bhavya has a strong belief in sustainable and inclusive development. Drawing inspiration from his roots, the Bishnoi community - the world's first environmentalists - he embarked on the Global Himalayan Expedition with 20 people from 9 countries to electrify remote villages in Leh, Ladakh using solar energy.
