Mission Statement

Omprakash is built on the idea that positive social change must begin with human relationships. Our primary goal is fundamentally educational: by forging connections within our network, we want to "lead out" the citizens of the world towards an awareness of the human and ecological community from which they are indivisible and within which they can enact change.

Description

We build partnerships with grassroots health, education, and environmental projects around the world, and connect them with volunteers, donors, and classrooms that can learn from and support their work.

Would you recommend Omprakash?

I've been involved with Omprakash for nearly 2 years. I worked for one of their partners in Cusco, Peru and received amazing support form their staff. Interested donors were able to give directly to the project (Omprakash partner) through their website. They have an "expense tool" that enables projects to document the spending of donations greatly improving transparency. While I was in Peru, I received a grant through Omprakash that allowed me to continue my work. Upon returning to the US, I continued to volunteer for Omprakash directly. Their no partner/volunteer fee, information sharing and educational model is unique and helps to connect volunteers with grassroots projects all over the world. Projects topics range from HIV/AIDS, environment, education, women's empowerment and more. Through the website, people can connect with and learn from fellow volunteers by viewing stories and media. I highly recommend this network.
