Established in 2016, VBF stands as a registered non-profit organization formed by a group of young social workers to address and fill the existing gaps in education system, lack of professional development opportunities and gender discrimination. VBF initially started its journey with micro-level community projects to raise awareness and increase youth participation through volunteer activities in the sphere of education, culture and life skills. Later to expand its scope of work, VBF increased its focus on non-formal education, pedagogical skills,
professional development and gender empowerment to facilitate transformational change among vulnerable communities and contribute towards provision of basic human rights. VBF with its mandate to build an equitable society with an access to education and enhancement opportunities has evolved since its inception into a goal oriented organization with an emphasis on research, communication development, advocacy, community outreach and capacity building programs to empower women, youth and professionals.
In a short span of time, VBF has expanded its roots across the country including AJK and GB through various partnerships with governmental and non-governmental actors, as well as media to maximize the impact of its work and achieve a system level change. At present, VBF has collaborated with Department of States, Secondary & Elementary Education Department, KPK, Government of AJK, Pakistan Sweet Home, University of the Poonch Rawalakot, University of Nebraska, and CodeHer USA.
