Anjali Walks the ramp for Vibha Vibe
Fundraising for Dallas Vibe 2020
I am walking the fashion show for Vibe 2020, Dancing for a Cause, is an exciting fundraiser for Vibha- whose core goal is to Educate, Empower and Enable children through education.
Why Am I doing this?
It’s hard enough being a student in the USA, let alone in India. I’ve had to advocate for myself and kids in my school. And I can’t imagine what my future will hold if I didn’t go to school or college. I truly want to give all kids the opportunity to succeed.
I have volunteered with Vibha for 10 years. I’ve taught summer camps For refugee children, tutored several Underprivileged kids, organized food drives for kids, organized music evenings for the cancer center and Christmas carols for about 200 kids at City church, made blankets for the homeless, etc etc. I’ve also made tons of awareness videos including on topics such as child abuse, and right now I manage all the multimedia and am part of the marketing team for the chapter In Dallas. I’ve clocked in 150 hours of volunteering through Vibha every year for the past 6 years.
In India the official numbers for learning outcomes are pretty dismal:
Only 1/4th of the students enrolled are at grade level in terms of math and reading skills,
Only 1/2 of all children surveyed can read and
Less than a 1/3rd can do basic arithmetic.
Vibha enables solutions to problems like these , constantly looking for scalable, sustainable and replicable models that can meaningfully address the root cause.
Outcomes matter, and the bar is always set high for trust and transparency, one that was recognized with the 2019 Top Rated Award from GreatNonProfits and the 2019 GuideStar Platinum Seal, which puts Vibha in the top 0.1% of over 2 Million listed non-profits.
The efforts of Vibha currently empower almost 2.3 million children in India. I want to also join in this movement to influence learning oucomes. I can't do it without your love and support. Will you join our movement and support me in my fundraiser?
