When many people come together they make a community. When many organizations come together they also make a community. VBIC brings together a dedicated team of individuals and organizations that have come together for their respective communities.
When people work together it is called a team and when organizations work together it is called partnership.
VBIC is about Community, Partnerships and Teamwork.
