[edit] PLEDGE FOR A CHILD'S BETTER FUTURE

Click here to pledge an amount.

Over 100 million children in India between 6 and 14 years of age are outside the school system. Over 20 million children are child laborers. Statistics like these portray a bleak picture, but you’ll be surprised at how little it takes to make a difference. How little it takes to bring about significant change in the lives of these children. How little it takes to bring a smile to a child’s face.

Vibha’s mission is to "educate, empower and enable every individual who wishes to make a positive difference in the life of an underprivileged child". We look at ourselves as a medium to enable you to make a positive change in the lives of such children. And, THIS is your chance to give them the gift of education, health, and opportunity. Your chance to give them the gift of what we take for granted—childhood!

Vibha also believes in giving back to the community that it raises money from. This year Dream Mile 2007's local beneficiary is Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Georgia and Alabama. The Make-A-Wish Foundation® grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy. As the number of children with life-threatening medical conditions continues to increase, we must work harder than ever to ensure that every medically qualified child receives a wondrous experience.
