Atlanta, GA, March 15, 2024: In a momentous occasion on February 15th, Vibha Atlanta, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing quality education to children, was honored by the Georgia House of Representatives.

The recognition comes as a testament to Vibha Atlanta’s unwavering commitment to making a positive difference in the lives of children.
