Mission: Vibha’s mission is to educate, empower and enable every individual who wants to make a difference in the life of an underprivileged child. In 1991, a few people in New Jersey decided to start an organization that would provide a platform for individuals who want to improve the lives of millions of underprivileged children in India. Collectively, the dreams and actions of these people have resulted in a positive difference in the lives of 150,000 children through 190 projects.

Results: Since 1991, Vibha has made a positive difference in the lives of 150,000 children through 190 projects.

Direct beneficiaries per year: About 40,000

Geographic areas served: India, USA

Programs: Vibha makes sure that the contributions are put to good use by directing the money to its partner-projects, all of which are run by dedicated individuals who work with under-privileged children. Projects focus on severely disadvantaged and vulnerable groups - children in bonded labor, street and slum dwelling children. Support is also extended to community development programs focusing on the welfare of the community.

I have been involved with Vibha from last 3-4 years, mostly by participating in their fun events in bay-area. I must say that it's a very well run organization with dedicated volunteers. I am confident that it will grow leaps and bounds in coming years and make a difference for millions of kids.

I have been amazed at the dedication and the passion of Vibha's volunteers. These folks go far beyond the call of duty, spend their evenings and weekends towards the cause. This is true altruism.

I interpret Vibha's mission as Educate, Empower and Enable every child to realize his or her potential - extending the gift of opportunity that most of us take for granted. I have volunteered with Vibha for 6 years now, and what I find most amazing is the relentless passion of the volunteer team, year over year, towards attaining the goal. The grassroots nature and low overhead/administration cost makes each contribution more valuable. Thorough evaluation of projects that Vibha sponsors assures me that our contributions will be used as efficiently as possible. I love Vibha, the goal, the team and am proud to be a volunteer.

I had the pleasure of volunteering for Vibha in a kids activity booth. This was the first time I did volunteer and I found out more good things about the organization and its values and work. I felt immensely satisfied.

I was a participant in Vibha’s Dream Mile Run 2009. I must confess that the volunteers seem like an extremely dedicated group of individuals and very innovative in kind of events they come up with to raise funds for the less fortunate children back home. Guys! Vibha is lucky to have you as volunteers. Keep up the good work.

Working with Vibha volunteers is really refreshing. The passion each person shows towards the cause, the professionalism shown towards organizing events, the enthusiasm in their efforts to beat their own previous achievements etc are really mind blowing.

Vibha is truly an incredible organization! I have donated to a couple of events and have been thoroughly impressed with the professionalism, integrity and enthusiasm of the volunteers and leaders. What this organization is doing to help the underprivileged is genuine and self-less...two very important qualities that build a unique and successful non-profit organization! Well done and God bless!

I have volunteered with a few non-profits but volunteering with Vibha always gave me the most satisfaction. They have a very professional approach in everything they do. Their project selection as well as monitoring process is very well defined and highly evolved. They have highly committed and very motivated volunteers who keep the underprivileged children's cause at heart all the time. One very specific, recent example of how Vibha is creating an impact - recently they organized a conference in India where all the grass projects supported by Vibha came under one roof. Best outcome of this effort is that these NGOs had a great dialog about best practices and processes.
