Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Children & Youth, Children & Youth Services, International, International Relief, Philanthropy

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 a volunteer for Vibha for 6 years. I have been involved in most aspects of the organization, from raising funds to selecting grantee organizations. I have seen first hand the impact that these grantee organizations have had on underprivileged children-from decreasing rates of child marriage in villages in Maharashtra to increasing the quality of public education in Tamil Nadu. Vibha is a volunteer-driven organization with its attendant strengths and weaknesses. The strengths include a committed volunteer group and low overhead costs. On the flip side this means that Vibha is reliant on a volunteer group who are juggling a busy professional career with their volunteer work. Vibha has a bright future ahead of it. Recent initiatives such as the conference for grantee organizations point to a more active role for Vibha in the quest to improve the lives of underprivileged children.

I have been part of this organization since 2001 and had the opportunity to work on various avenues from fund raising to selecting projects. The organization mission statement "Educate, Empower & Enable every individual who wishes to make a positive difference in the life of an underprivileged child" is what makes this organization different.

I have been volunteering for this organization since 1993. The best part of this organization is that it creates a platform for anyone who wants to make a difference in the lives of underprivileged children.
