Dear Vibha Patron,
It gives me great pleasure to inform you about how you have enabled Vibha to meet its goals for 2014. At the end of 2013, we launched a Year-End campaign to raise an additional $100,000 so that we could expand our model to seed, scale and grow
new projects in new geographic locations across India. I am happy to report that thanks to your generous donations, we met our financial goal and selected 4 new projects that significantly impact the lives of underprivileged children in the geographies these projects serve. With the addition of these 4 projects to our existing portfolio, we have invested in a total of 32 projects in 2014. With our investments over the years, we have impacted the lives of over a million underprivileged children to-date.
At the beginning of 2014, we went through a rigorous process of identifying these new projects. After combing through
numerous proposals, undertaking painstaking research and regular conference calls between the projects and the Vibha
team, and making multiple project visits to ensure these projects meet Vibha standards, we identified 4 projects that we believe
do justice to your investments.
While researching these new projects, we found additional projects that fit our seed, grow and scale model and also provided solutions to solve a systemic problem. Thus, this year we would like to double the stakes and raise $200,000 through our Year-End campaign. Raising this additional revenue will not only make Vibha a Million-Dollar organization, but it will also give us the additional resources and tools to expand our model and make the impact we want to. What can I say – we at Vibha are always seeking to expand our reach when it comes to solving the problems of underprivileged children. We cannot do any of this without your continued support. We need patrons like you who believe in what we do and stay involved.
I am reaching out to you to help us by:
1. Becoming part of our Year-End fundraising campaign by starting your own campaign at Vibha.org.
2. Donating to our campaign.
3. Volunteering with Vibha and becoming part of our decision making process.
4. Spreading Vibha’s cause to your colleagues, friends and family.
