Overseas Volunteer for a Better India (OVBI) was launched in May 2013, and is driven by a group of NRIs ready to support initiatives in India and tackle issues the Indian community faces in the U.S. 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.

We are Indians abroad who care for a better India. We are doctors, students, engineers, volunteers, business owners and everyday citizens coming together for the betterment of India. We believe that indifference of the masses is responsible for India’s current problems and we are committed to changing it
OVBI is the overseas arm of Volunteer for Better India.VBI'S Primary focus is to address issues faced by youths, women, and farmers in India. We help create a sense of community among Indians by helping new immigrants integrate into the society, offering free community services (immigration, accounting, and medical) and provide a strong support structure for victims of hate crimes, domestic violence and racial discrimination. We believe that every individual can make a meaningful impact and play a role in the betterment of the global Indian community. Indians abroad bring to the table deep expertise in the fields of technology, health care, policy making. We facilitate collaboration between domain experts in US and India to bring about institutional reform and systemic change in India.

Together we can transform the world in a way that would make great leaders like Mahatma Ghandhi proud. We invite you to get involved
