Vodafone Foundation, part of Vodafone Idea Ltd, India’s leading telecom company, in partnership with the NASSCOM Foundation and VSO, announced the launch of ‘VIBE’, a unique and holistic mobile based digital solution to inspire volunteering, drive volunteer mobilisation and engagement as well as to diligently manage the output and impact of volunteering efforts. Shri Arun Goel, Secretary, Ministry of Culture, Government of India was present during the launch.

Organised volunteering has a significant role to play in India’s overall socio economic development. It creates a win-win proposition for corporates as collective Volunteer engagement with a specific purpose, helps corporates boost productivity, foster team building and retain talent. For the developmental sector, several benefits accrue in the form of enhanced understanding of community needs, access to specialist skills and a committed approach to deliver clear outcomes.

VIBE has been specially developed to scale-up the potential and impact of volunteering such that it serves a greater purpose benefitting communities and causes at large. A  comprehensive web based online dashboard, easily accessible via mobile provides a convenient bridge connecting individual volunteers seeking purposeful opportunities, corporates interested in offering their work force for volunteering and developmental sector organisations- NGOs, Trusts, Social Enterprises, seeking the services of such committed volunteers.

VSO-VIBE is an easy to use, comprehensive mobile based solution which holistically records the time spent on volunteering as well as the individual and collective impact made towards addressing the social issue being worked upon. It also provides an interactive platform for individual volunteers to share their work, thoughts and experience enabling learning and collaboration on the go. It is designed and developed by a specialist team of technology professionals under guidance from relevant sectoral experts drawn from corporate, developmental sector and academia.

VIBE can significantly simplify and enhance the scope for volunteering in India, thereby making a difference to the lives of addressable communities.
