Our Journey: The journey of VibhaVani began with the realization that the benefits of science and technology should reach the masses. The first NGO Conclave was organized alongside IISF-2016 in NPL, New Delhi, by the Ministry of Science & Technology. This conclave paved the way for the formation of a national network of science-oriented social organizations and institutions under the umbrella of VibhaVani, as a development initiative of Vijnan Bharathi, a renowned science movement with a track record of over 25 years. After working as an informal network for more than three years, VibhaVani was registered as a Society named Vibha Vani India Society, later expanded to Vibha-Vaibhav Association of Nation Building Organizations and Institutions India (Vibha-Vani). The organization's head office is situated in New Delhi, while the registered office is in Bangalore.

Aims & Objectives: VibhaVani aims to create at least a thousand Integrated Sustainable Community Development Models across the nation by 2022. This involves transforming at least a thousand voluntary developmental organizations into Nation Building Organizations (NBOs). The organization seeks to empower and enable the vast network of science-oriented social organizations and institutions across the country through knowledge sharing and capacity building to achieve sustainable development goals.

Conclusion: VibhaVani's mission to empower India through science and social development is commendable.
