Have you been having a fun summer? We at Vibha sure are - we definitely know how to have fun with a purpose - spanning different action centers across the United States! While Atlanta wrapped up one of the most exciting dance competition that raised $80,000 to support the education of about 2500 children, Bay Area witnessed 800 participants being a part of the Dream Mile, proceeds from which went to support the Doorstep School in India, and our New York / New Jersey action center had fun with purpose through a game day as effort to expand Vibha’s footprint further! In between all these events, was a volunteer in Colorado who brought the entire Indian community to gather to support a school district to help them provide 100 Chromebooks for 2nd and 3rd graders.
And of course do not miss our volunteer spotlight section - our volunteers are our strengths and the flag- bearers to our mission of being a catalyst!
As volunteers of Vibha based in the US, we take pride in the fact that we are working for the benefit of children back at the homeland. However, India is not the only nation facing problems with education infrastructure. Even here in the US, there are districts and counties that lack funding or staffing to meet the needs of a burgeoning student population.
While Vibha Atlanta has various fundraisers planned year-round, this year, the Action Center came up with a singular concept-Vibe. Vibe was a cultural fundraising event that involved the local leaders, with an intent to create more visibility for Vibha and having the patrons form a personal connection with the cause and celebrate the joy of giving with their family and friends.
