Vibha’s vision is to ensure that every under privileged child attains his, or her right to health, education and opportunity, or more simply – provide an environment that enables each under privileged child to reach his or her potential. By bringing together the skills, passion and drive of thousands of like-minded volunteers, Vibha disburses approximately 90% of all donations to fund and scale social change projects in India and the United States. To date more than 300,000 children have been directly impacted through its efforts.

As part of aiming for a strong “final lap” to its 2015 fundraising efforts, Vibha has launched a Year End Drive aimed at shining a light on the various means by which donors can make an impact. While one-time donations are always welcome, Vibha has developed unique mechanisms to amplify the impact of contributions. Such mechanisms include partnerships with corporations to match select donations, providing the ability for donors to contribute to a specific cause or project, and creative ways by which donors can make a difference by donating stocks or a used vehicle.

…You Are Our Business Model!

More people are reading India Currents than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organizations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Our independent, community journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $5, you can support us – and it takes just a moment to give via PayPal or credit card.
