Omprakash is a non-profit global organisation and an online platform that offers volunteering opportunities worldwide. One of its goals is cooperation in education with universities on a global level.
Today the Omprakash network spreads across over 40 countries and unites over 140 partner organisations in India, China, African countries and more.
Omprakash was founded in 2005. Since then, the organisation has connected more than 7,000 volunteers with their international partners and collected over 2 million dollars of donations.
The mission of Omprakash is to educate its participants by deep engagement in local grassroot communities all over the world. Volunteers at Omprakash can benefit from mutual learning together with peers and partners, develop critical thinking and learn leadership skills.
Omprakash actively advocates positive social change and ensures an effective and transparent platform for donations.
In addition to volunteering programs, Omprakash offers Education through Global Engagement (Omprakash EdGE). The program is aimed at undergraduate and graduate students looking for internship and research opportunities or meaningful occupation for their gap year.
Before they depart to the country of their choice, participants take a massive interdisciplinary online course with an experienced and recognized EdGE mentor.
The EdGE course has been accredited by Kansas State University and other institutions as a valid partner for international internships.
