It’s time that we, the citizens, volunteer to shoulder responsibilities and be a part of the solution. Volunteering is a passion kindled by “humanness”. It is action on the ground. Volunteer for a Better India (VFABI) is a call of every citizen to make things better and to give a better society to the coming generation. VFABI is a call to give one hour of your precious time to set things which you think are not right. It is the call of the hour not to blame our society, but to plunge into action. It offers a platform to every Indian to channelize talents, voice, opinions and emerge as a leader, and more over a responsible citizen.
Be a volunteer and be the agent for change!
