Help them thrive, not just survive

What do you do when your circumstances force you to focus only on one thing - and that one thing is your survival?

Everything else falls out of the picture. Education, healthcare, dreams for a better future.

This was Rashmita's situation in 2001. Fortunately for her, Community Outreach Program (CORP) supported by Vibha stepped in. Admitted to the center's crèche, she later moved on to a Balavadi (kindergarten) and was mainstreamed into a Government School. CORP supported her throughout by providing supplemental study classes and mid-day meals. And now, 15 years later, Rashmita is going stronger than ever. She has completed her high-school with 85% marks and is looking forward to higher studies.

You made this happen for Rashmita. But many more need your help. Your tax deductible donation to Vibha now will ensure that more children will go to school in 2017.

By funding and mentoring the CORP, Vibha ensures that children do not miss the opportunity of getting meaningful education, healthcare and social inclusion because of their socio-economic status.
