Who we are

Overseas Volunteer for a Better India (OVBI) was founded to realize the dream of improving the lives of Indians in India and overseas. We believe that every individual can make a difference and play a role in the betterment of the Indian community

For India, enhanced agriculture, job creation and innovation are important pillars for progress and OVBI spearheads many projects to support this objective. We also provide support for calamities or natural disasters in the Indian subcontinent and overseas. The Indian diaspora is spread all over the world and OVBI does a lot of work in local communities in many countries, including here in Canada, to help the needy and vulnerable, regardless of ethnicity. Together, we can transform the world and make it a better place!
