Help Build a Brighter Future, One Child at a Time
Did you know that $200 can help support 12 children for one year?
That's an average of $16.66 per child for one full year!
The Dream Mile is the flagship event in Vibha's continued efforts to increase awareness about the plight of underprivileged children in India and the US. This is the 6th year that Vibha Houston is hosting the Dream Mile. We hope that you will join us in raising funds to ensure that every underprivileged child attains his or her right to a quality education. This year, our goal is to raise $10,000. Funds raised from the Dream Mile will go towards supporting 2 very worthy NGOs, Boys and Girls Harbor, Texas and Door Step School.

Door Step School provides education and support to the children of pavement dwellers, slum dwellers, construction site families and many other underprivileged families. Many of these children are not enrolled in school and have limited access to books and a place to study. Many drop out of school to work or care for their younger siblings. With neither support nor resources at home, some children suffer from very low learning levels. DSS is trying to bridge this gap by bringing education to the "Door Step" of these underprivileged children. More details at Door Step School and blog.doorstepschool.org
Boys & Girls Harbor The Mission of Boys & Girls Harbor is to provide healthy, comprehensive care for children and families in crisis. For children who are experiencing family hardship, neglect, abandonment or abuse, the Harbor provides a family environment in a home setting. Through its programs, the Harbor strives to help children learn to overcome self-destructive patterns, break cycles of abuse, develop social skills, learn responsibility, and work towards becoming healthy, happy, and productive members of society.
