REBUILDING INDIA
After 60 years of Independence, India still faces fundamental issues like rampant corruption, violence against women, child labor, and farmer suicides. The apathy of good citizens, both residing in India and the Indian Diaspora (Indians residing abroad), has led the country towards ineffective governance and criminalization of politics which are the root cause of most burning issues that India faces today.

OVERSEAS VOLUNTEER FOR A BETTER INDIA (OVBI)
OVBI is a NRI Organization helping to rebuild India. OVBI supports NRIs to give their time, talent and/or money to help VBI movement.
