Project Saarthi

This project has so far provided mentors to many students from the MBA batch at Sri Sri University. It is uniquely positioned to support other universities in remote parts of India, where students truly need a helping hand to launch themselves in the professional world.

Project Adopt a Village 

Adopt a village and help them provide basic necessities and uplift the lives of the people. OVBI has been instrumental in starting these projects in more than 10 villages. Below is an example of how an NRI made a significant change in his own village.

Halgara -  (Taluka - Nilanga, Dist: Latur, Maharashtra )

Mr Datta Patil - an OVBI leader went to his village Halgara that was suffering from severe drought for more than 5 years. He brought people, NGOs and NRIs together to bring the change. Through this effort a 5 km long canal was revived and that provided enough water to the village for coming years.

Work Completed: Main Canal (5km length, 60 ft wide, 6-9 ft deep)
Work Just started: Sub Canal (1km length, 20 ft wide, 8ft deep)
