Our People

Vibha is largely a volunteer-led organization and to that effect a semi-virtual organization. More than 800 working professionals and students in various Action Centers across the US and several cities in India make up our family of passionate and committed social change initiators.

 

Vibha’s Board of Directors and the National Executive team oversees all the functional areas (Fundraisers and Events, IT, Programs and Products, Projects, Marketing and Volunteer Relations) at a national level.

 

The Action Centers elect their own teams and organize fundraising initiatives independently. Every Action Center has an Action Center Coordinator (ACC) who leads the AC specific efforts and communicates with the other Centers and the National Executive Team.
