My journey with Vibha started when my daughter started volunteering for it and I joined for their flagship event -DreamMile. I have been associated with Vibha for past 3 years in some volunteer capacity. One thing that continues to amaze me is the passion and commitment that everyone puts in to get work done. The best part of all of this is to hear the success stories when we get to see the real impact made on kids lives!
I have been involved with. Vibha for the last 15 years, from Boston to Houston to Mumbai to online global. As I moved it has been able to travel with me at all the chapters and it has kept my dedication because of the sustainable projects and dedicated volunteers. If anyone is thinking of volunteering or looking for an organization to donate which is having an impact I would strongly suggest looking up their projects and the work they do.
Have been volunteering with vibha from 2005 onwards , such is this organization filled with dedicated , innovative and motivated individuals that whatever I do, I feel I am doing less.
Hats to all volunteers and patrons .
Who would have imagined pulling off a 4000+ individual registered event, raising more than $400,000 during a COVID-19 pandemic year? Surely not me, even though I have been associated with this organization for the last 12 years. Vibha’s Dream Mile X, while raising money for the great purpose of helping underprivileged children achieve their dream of a better future, also helped many like me get out of the house, and walk or run, thereby improving health outcomes. Amazing work done by a few Vibha volunteers, whose enthusiasm, energy and effort made this look like an effortless event.
I have been associated with Vibha for the past 10 years, and one thing that continues to impress me is the consistency within the organization. This consistency combined with a commitment to help change the future of many underprivileged children is what motivates me to donate to Vibha.
Fabulous organization filled with passionate people. Organized, flat structures and doing some great work. very honored to be a part of Vibha!
With an astonishing multitude of non profits and organizations that claim to be ‘non profit’ it was important to me to find one that was legitimate and really tried to make a difference. And beyond all that it was important for me to find an organization whose leadership cared deeply , was passionate, and wasn’t mired in alternative agendas. I took my time watching Vibha from the periphery as a youth parent, worked as an event day volunteer for many years as I got to understand the organization. I took on the youth team for a few years before stepping into a larger responsibility with Vibha as one of the action center coordinators. I think after 15 years, I can honestly say that Vibha is an organization that’s open and honest- where integrity is prized and ‘Mission First’ is a mantra. It's also one that truly views its volunteers as its most precious resource and works to develop them. Plus Vibha’s model of seed, grow and scale is one that truly can scale solutions to make a dent in the enormous issues facing children in the world today. It’s a complete privilege to volunteer with this organization.
Vibha is completely volunteer driven organization that supports several projects in India especially around child education. Besides supporting India based projects, Vibha volunteers also run several initiatives locally like Food drives, removing the digital gap by donating laptops, youth tutoring kids of lower economic background, relief efforts when disasters strike in US and several others. All these volunteers work selflessly because they see the transparency on funds gathered and dedication of other individuals across US. Proud to be a Vibha volunteer !
I have been volunteer with Vibha for 10+ years now. Vibha is an excellent platform for people in all walks of life to meaningfully contribute their time, talent and money.. its mission is grounded in ensuring brighter future for the underserved by improving quality of education that they have access to and better opportunities in life.
Vibha has done an excellent job to reach out to underprivileged kids in the middle of the pandemic . They have made sure the funding to their projects to provide quality public education is not impacted due to the pandemic by organizing virtual fundraisers and involving all their volunteers to make a difference.
What makes Vibha stand out is the professionalism showcased in every Vibha event and also in managing the projects inpsite of being a completely volunteer driven organization. You always feel welcomed as a new voluteer in the Vibha family.
Vibha has been doing exemplary work in providing quality education to underprivileged children in India and the US through its partners for more than 25 years. For a completely volunteer-driven organization to do this year-over-year is unheard of. The volunteers work relentlessly and are very passionate about the cause and the leadership team across the board has been great to work with. The difference this organization has been making in the fields of public education for underserved and reducing the digital divide has been acknowledged at various levels. Vibha strongly advocates access to quality education for all children, and opportunities to improve the general quality of their life. Working in collaboration with governments, communities, parents, teachers, and volunteers, we focus on resourceful interaction to address the gaps in the education system. Our work in the USA revolves around ways to reduce digital divide and access to quality education for underserved communities.
Vibha has been playing a great role in helping kids to attain their education and rights. Focusing and fixing root level issues in the system.
Great platform to give back to community! Completely driven by passionate volunteers!
I chose to volunteer with Vibha and give back to the community. Highly energetic, truly stunning and starring innovation in their approach to give back, I am sold that this is the right choice. I learn so much every day working with this great team of individuals and staying motivated with how much people can do to give back to the community.
Such an amazing organization with such inspiring people. I got to know about Vibha last December and have been volunteering ever since. And the fact that I can do my tiny bit to help make changes in the life on a underprivileged kid in any capacity and bring a smile on their face is truly special. Kudos to all the volunteers for runny the organization so beautifully.
There are many organizations which do good work, many people in this world who need additional support. Vibha is one of those organizations which takes dedicated attention to make sure their efforts are making the right impact. Vibha is not an organization, its an energy - which is needed to keep humans stay as humans and make all of us feel there is more than ourself.
As a newbie to Vibha with only an year's experience, but committed for life...the reasons I believe in Vibha are
- working directly for the most imp cause (children education)
- its sincerity towards professionalism and horizontal hierarchy
- impressive dedication n efforts put in by the volunteers
- mature, thoughtful, sensible, encouraging and result focused leadership
Like every good citizen,I too made my research before I donate or volunteer.And found out that Vibha empowers and educate little kids They literally pick the orphan and the homeless kids from the slums and streets and garbages. I am a proud Vibha volunteer and feel blessed to be a part of them.
Sarika and I participated / volunteered in Vibe 2019. We had the opportunity to know Vibha very closely. Vibha is 100% volunteer driven Non-Profit organization that supports underprivileged children’s education. Every penny donated to Vibha goes a long way. With a history of over 15 years of transparent operations, it is one of most reliable platforms for making a difference. Vibha team is one of the most dedicated and motivated teams we know.
Please help and support Vibha by donating, or, by volunteering.
I joined Vibha in 2019. In just few months I could feel the energy and passion in the organization. Flat organization with great transparency and very inspiring leadership
have been volunteering in this org for few few years and is near and dear to my heart. It gives me immense pleasure to be part of huge effort to educate kids who deserve more than just best. There is amazing and tireless effort which goes in each of the event organized by Vibha org, kudos to all the volunteers for their endless energy. I will continue to contribute to what ever service I can do for Vibha non profit org, because I know it is truly a non profit org !!!
I feel so blessed to have found Vibha! This is an amazing group of completely selfless, hardworking volunteers who wholeheartedly want to make a difference. I have been so impressed with Vibha over the last 3 years that I have known them and will continue to support them in their noble cause! The children and their future are truly at the heart of all of their efforts!
I am a Vibha volunteer since more than 10 + years and still volunteering. The reason I chose this organization from all others is because of its volunteer dedication and crystal clear organization accounting. There is nothing hidden. All the volunteers are giving their free time with no return expectations from the organization and that is dedication of volunteers.
I have been volunteering with Vibha for nearly 10 years, a non profit organization whose mission is to enable, educate, empower every individual who would like to make a positive difference in the life of an underprivileged child.
This is a wonderful volunteer driven organization whose vision is to fulfill the mission.
Lot of thought and effort by volunteers in every single event organized . Great group of people to work with . Have been part of this non profit as a volunteer and client . Had s great time interacting with team and kids . Every kid deserves a fair chance and happy to work with charities like Vibha
I came to Vibha three years ago to start my share of giving back to the community and fell in love with the transparency top to bottom. Leadership, energy and passion other volunteers bring to the team is amazing.
Vibha truly lives the mission - to educate, empower and enable everyone involved.
Been volunteering with Vibha for more than a decade. Complete transparency, great leadership from top to bottom and completely volunteer driven organization. Not seen any other non profit that has this credibility and ROI on donations made.
I have been a Vibha volunteer at the Atlanta action center since April 2017, honestly I can say that this is one of the best decisions I have made in my life. Every volunteer at Vibha is committed to the cause from within, it is like they breathe and live the mission of Vibha at all times. The dedication and sincerity demonstrated at every monthly meeting, during months in advance of every major every fundraising event are simply out of the world, in my experience. All senior volunteers welcome the new volunteers with an open heart and open mind, give opportunities to pursue novel ideas/thoughts. Everyone takes their respective roles at Vibha seriously, meticulously performs them which is why the outcome is always outstanding.
Additionally, the Atlanta action center’s youth volunteers always go above and beyond in their service to the local chapters in Atlanta and in fundraising for our flagship event ‘The Dream Mile’. Overall, I feel a great sense of community and nurturing ambience at Vibha. Look forward to many more years of volunteering at this great organization where the grassroots level projects for child empowerment and education are carefully selected and funded. Finally, Vibha leadership is of special mention, they support and direct budding leaders.
I have been volunteering for VIBHA for 5 years now, and I feel grateful to be associated with such a great organization.Vibha is a volunteer driven organization ,every volunteers here show enormous amount of passion towards education of underprivileged children. It gives me immense pleasure to be associated with VIBHA and its great cause . For me personally, education is basic need of any child and for humanity we all should help every child attain this right. In Vibha this cause has been identified and been driven effectively for around 27 years . As a volunteer, I truly trust Vibha, its transparency and its extremely great cause. Proud to be part of such an amazing organization.
Great organization to be part of. We value people and ethics the most and that’s what makes me proud.
I’ve been volunteering with Vibha for 12 years. Volunteering has shown me a new perspective of life and be able to appreciate what I have. Being a part of Vibha I have grown to be a better person both personally and professionally. I’m impressed with the transparency of the organization and very low administrative costs. Vibha has made impact at a much larger scale working with other NPOs, government organizations and other entrepreneurs. Hence it’s not just any other funding organization but making longer deeper impacts in the society - I am really proud to be a part of this vibrant organization making a huge difference to the community
I have been volunteering for Vibha for more than 5 years now, and I consider myself very fortunate that I am able to do something for underprivileged kids and help then by supporting the wonderful projects that are run every year by Vibha. There is so much transparency, as a volunteer I can visit any of the projects and also connect with the affected kids through technology or visits. It’s such a great
feeling to personally seethat the money that we raise through events /donate actually brings about change.
I started volunteering for Vibha in 1999. Till date, it has been a great journey working in Philadelphia, New York and New Jersey. I took a long break in between when I got married. But it was like home coming when I was ready to roll the sleeves again. Felt like I had never left the Vibha family.
Transparency and Empowerment defines Vibha! It has been an awesome journey working with some extraordinary talented individuals to make a difference in the lives of children in need! Thank you Vibha for this opportunity.
I used to be an Active volunteer for Vibha before 5 years. The one thing that I can swear is we have a wonderful team and they do tremendous personal sacrifices to make a difference in the lives of kids in India. The belief and confidence that the money donated goes in the full strength towards the cause keeps me in supporting this cause with donations and the little volunteering that I have just started doing again. My sincere salute to the people who have continued the passion from the time that I have known them and to the new volunteers who bring in the fresh ideas. Cheers to a great cause! Keyur
I have been volunteering with VIBHA from last 5 years.I always thought of being associated with a non profit organisation and then VIBHA gave me this opportunity to be a part of a social cause I was wishing to be.After joining VIBHA and attending meetings and doing various fund raising events..what stood apart for me was the transparency and dedication with which all volunteers work.May VIBHA family grow and make a difference in the lives of hundreds of thousands of kids.A proud VIBHA volunteer....
I started volunteering for Vibha in 2016 and I wish I had started doing it much earlier.Vibha is an organization whose sole mission is to uplift the lives of underprivileged children, with hardly any program overhead expenses, they are one most efficient and well organized non profits and the success of their events speaks volumes about their volunteer base and what they can achieve!
Vibha is an amazing organization that not only helps bring the community closer but brings the volunteers closer as well! The difference they make is huge for underprivileged children.
Vibha is an organization made of a wonderful group of volunteers who are all focused, driven, hardworking and willing to work towards an amazing goal of giving back to the society. I’ve been associated with Vibha for about 2 years now and have been amazed to see the constant flurry of activity going on in every part of the world!
Its an awesome platform for every individual to extend hand to great work of child education. Thanx Vibha for giving a great opportunity to give my country back what I received from it. One pen and a good teacher can transform a child’s life and when they have VIBHA by thier side then what more to ask.
Vibha is a non-profit org that helps in eradicating child labor and works towards the uplifting of the under privileged kids.
My family has been associated with Vibha for more than 7-8yrs and amazed with the level of commitment of the volunteers and the transparency that this org brings to the table.
Every yr I have seen Vibha grow as a family and the new stars it adds to its name.
Even if I’m not physically present to help a child in need, I feel a lot closer to them when I know that the Global Vibha Team is keeping a close watch on them.
I’m trying to imbibe the same respect I have for Vibha (and the meaning of charity, humanity, humility) in my children, so they understand how fortunate they are and what Grt work this org is doing.
I’m proud to be a ‘Vibhatian’ (if I can say so), and will be committed to the cause forever.
I started volunteering with Vibha in 2010. As a new year resolution, i researched multiple organizations before selecting Vibha. My first experience was attending the monthly meeting at a local action center (chapter). That experience of warmth, passion and purpose has stayed with me till date. This is a platform for anyone who wants to make a difference in their own way (donate talent, time, ideas, money) towards its mission. And whats unique is that it’s entirely volunteer run organization. I recommend folks interested in volunteering to take the 1st step by attending a local action center(chaoter) meeting or a fundraiser event and see it for themselves.
I got introduced to Vibha Atlanta in 2016... A 100% volunteer led effort here in the USA, and these volunteers spend hundreds of their hours towards this. I am a big supporter of child education and girls’ empowerment and got to see first hand some of the projects they run through NGO’s during my visit to Mumbai. Love and support this organization and their mission.
My mother supports municipal schools in Mumbai as a volunteer and donor and has devoted 15 years to a cause very similar. Her children are now graduated and through education have achieved a powerful stance in society. Vibha does this on a massive scale and will have massive impact on the lives of thousands of children
Vibha is an amazing organization that doesn't just bring the community together, but also brings all of it's volunteers together as a family.
Vibha is an one of a kind organization that is focused on working at the grassroots to address childhood education and health! Some of my role models are at Vibha and I’m simply fortunate to come across an amazing army of volunteers so driven!
I have volunteered with Vibha for several years and what is unique about it is that every one is a volunteer. So all have a day job do activities to raise funds or volunteer in their spare time.
As a volunteer for Vibha during their Dream Mile in Houston as well as in Bangalore, I loved the commitment shown by the volunteers. Everyone was humble and there was no hierarchy.
All were assigned roles and all lived up to it, whether it was to provide water and hydration to the runners or clean up the roads after the race was done, it was done with heart and commitment.
It was heartening to see all volunteers stay back after the last runner was gone and cleaned up the whole place to leave it in a condition that it was before the race started !!!!!
I have been a Vibha volunteer for four years. It is wonderful to be a part of such committed organisation. I have a lot of fun organising events to raise funds and immensely enjoy interacting with children during our project visits. I am very proud to be a part of Vibha.
I have been a volunteer with Vibha in India for the last 5 years. With Vibha, everything is extremely transparent and the global volunteer team works as one unit towards the final goal of providing a brighter future for children. I am extremely proud of being part of this team.
I have been a Vibha volunteer for the past 10 years and I feel proud to be associated with Vibha. Vibha is synonymous to integrity, transparency and dedication. It is a completely volunteer driven organization and the volunteers here show enormous amount of passion towards education of underprivileged children. Vibha has been awarded the Guidestargold seal of transparency. With close to 1000 volunteers across USA and India, Vibha is here to make education and healthcare accessible to every child.
I have been volunteering for Vibha for more than 6 years now and you will not find a dedicated and passionate volunteer group anywhere else. It has been a lot of fun to work with like minded people in planning and executing fundraising events.
Review from Guidestar
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.
Review from Guidestar
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 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 an organization which helps you play on your strengths to make a difference to the underprivileged children in India. The untiring passion and relentless commitment that each of the members bring to the organization topped with a noteworthy cause is what makes me proud to be associated with it.
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.
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 a volunteer at Vibha for the last 2 and a half years. I have been impressed by the discipline at the organization. The volunteers are really motivated, very cause driven. I have been impressed by the projects and the selection procedures for these projects.
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.
I've been a volunteer with the Vibha for about 5 yrs. I've enjoyed working with an excellent team of volunteers, their energy to help out and drive an event to success. Proud to be part of such an excellent team and knowing that whatever small I can do towards this organization, I can also make a difference in the life of less fortunate child.
I have been volunteering with Vibha for more than a year now and it gives me immense pleasure that I am also able to make difference in the life of less fortunate children. The thing that amazes me about Vibha is, it is volunteer run organization. kudos to those volunteers for their dedication. I am proud to be associated with Vibha.
I was an active volunteer years for several years have been an active donor for Vibha organization. It is an excellent oraganization doing great job for the under priviledged children. Great organization to volunteer.
I have been involved with Vibha for the past 3 years and it has been a learning and enriching experience for me. I joined Vibha immediately after graduating from school as I had spare time at my disposal. I was not sure of my commitment when I went for the first meeting. I was given an overview of all the projects handled by my action center at that meeting, and at the end of 2 hours I had signed up to look into a project that had come for review. The 2 months that followed reviewing the project not only gave me an insight about the project in hand, but also about how meticulously and seriously Vibha takes various aspects like mission, focus, sustainability, scalability and of course finances of a project in consideration. Every good and noble idea should be given a chance at the same time making sure that every penny of the donor is accounted for. I interacted with a dedicated and smart bunch of volunteers over this period, who always had innovative ideas for any project, and were knowledgeable about various issues faced by underprivileged children. After that I have been the project lead for two projects in India, AURED (focuses on children suffering from hearing disability) and Ariviyal Anandnam (provides learning aids for children from lower income groups to retain their interest in school). Every monitoring report and project review has re-affirmed my faith in the credibility and effectiveness of Vibha. The program coordinators from the grassroots organizations supported by Vibha have always lauded volunteers for their efforts in ensuring smooth functioning of the project. In the past couple of years, I took up a role as a co-lead for our annual fundraiser which exposed me to the fundraising side of Vibha. Volunteers have exhibited a great deal of professionalism and commitment in coming up with various fundraising programs and ideas, developing marketing materials, applying for grants, and maintaining good patron relations. All action centers work tirelessly for ensuring the success of a Vibha fundraiser event. It is truly motivational to be part of such an organization. I hope I can reach out and contribute more to grassroots organizations through Vibha in the future.
I am volunteering with Vibha for last four years and it give immense pleasure and satisfaction that all the money we raise would go to help the kids, who do not even have access to very basic amenities.
there is a proverb " every cloud has a silver lining". i think vibha has been a silver lining to those kids whom they are nurturing and taking care of. they have always gone out of their way to take of them more than themselves. this team has been the mother and father to them. fulfilled their wishes, respected them and loved them endlessely... you know what i like about vibha is that they are focussed and self motivated and they have so much of love to give to the kids.. its been a wonderful experience with them when i joined in as volunteer. HATS OFF !!! love you guys for what ur dong..ALL THE BEST!!!
