FACILITATING RELATIONSHIPS, DIALOGUE AND LEARNING BETWEEN SOCIAL CHANGE AGENTS AROUND THE WORLD
Omprakash is a 501c3 organisation established in 2004. It acts a fiscal sponsor to more than 200 partners in the US and offers a well-established online platform for volunteering, crowdfunding and networking.
The organization began as a platform connecting volunteers with social impact organisations and has evolved to include a crowdfunding platform and an online learning ecosystem (Omprakash EdGE) that helps students grapple with the complexity of crossing differences of culture and power with the intention of 'doing good.'
Of its beginnings Omprakash say:
“The initial Omprakash.org website was simply a listing of a handful of organizations in India which were trying to recruit volunteer English teachers. Today, more than a decade later, our work has taken on many new dimensions, but the core principles remain true to our namesake: we help build relationships which create mutual learning and mutual benefit.”
Today, Omprakash offers a 501c3 fiscal sponsorship to over 200 vetted 'Omprakash Partners' around the world. It also provides a volunteer recruitment and matchmaking service and online learning.
In 2021 Omprakash Partners raised over $7M USD from donors around the world.
