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.

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.

Vibha Rocks.. Vibha is a great non profit organization. The dedication of the volunteers speak for itself.. The low expenses and high charitable funds for the children makes donating to this organization worthwhile

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.

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.

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.

I am highly impressed by the dedicated volunteers and their enthusiasm to work for great noble cause. The best part about Vibha is out of total donation, the most part of donation is used for project funding with very less expense on management. Vibha has got very good response through out the USA to being a very good non profit organization. I am proud to be myself as part of VIBHA.

I have been volunteering with Vibha since Oct 2006. This is has been very positive experience for me. Dallas has around 15 active volunteers right now. Their dedication and sincerity towards the cause is amazing. One of the best things about Vibha is their low wxpense to revenue ratio of around 90-85%, which means 90 to 85 cents per dollar go to actual project on ground. This means the 10-15% of administrative cost. Vibha currently support around 50+ projects in India. It recently had the project conference in bangalur India where representative from all the project participated. Its was forum for these projects to learn from each others best practices.
