Vision India Foundation (VIF) is a non-profit initiative by alumni and faculty members of various IITs. VIF is a platform which offers the brightest youth of the country, avenues to participate in the modern nation building movement.
We believe that politics, bureaucracy, entrepreneurship and academics are the sectors which need the brightest talent of the country today. We identify, engage and mentor youth in these fields. To achieve this goal, young minds across the nation are engaged through a wide spectrum of activities. Few are selected as VIF fellows and mentored to build a career in the above domains.
