Who care for a better India. We are doctors, students, engineers, volunteers, business owners and everyday citizens coming together for the betterment of our India. We believe that indifference of the masses is responsible for India’s current problems and we are committed to changing it.
Overseas Volunteer for a Better India (OVBI), launched in May 2013, is driven by a group of inspired Canadian NRIs ready to support initiatives in India and tackle issues the Indian community faces. Our movement’s roots are grounded in the Volunteer for a Better India (VBI) movement. On February 3rd, 2013 more than 100,000 concerned citizens united at Ram Lila Maidan in New Delhi in response to rampant corruption, violence towards women, suicides and water shortages. On that day, in unison the group pledged to give 1 hour a day for the nation and to inspire millions of others to do so. And Volunteer for a Better India was born.
OVBI is the overseas arm of Volunteer for Better India. We believe that every individual can make a meaningful impact and play a role in the betterment of the global Indian community. Together, we can transform the world in a way that would make great leaders like Mahatma Gandhi proud. We invite you to get involved.
