Omprakash

Named after an old man founder Willy Oppenheim met in India, this online network facilitates partnerships between volunteers and the organizations that need them.  Its focus is on education, both at home and abroad, and volunteers can search for opportunities based on the organizations’ needs and locations.

There are no guided tours or placement services here – you find your match and make all of the arrangements with your partner organization.  Omprakash does, however, offer support: volunteer grants can offest the cost of your travel, seed grants can fund your project, and Omprakash encourages connections between classrooms here in the U.S. and projects with partners in different countries.  The possibilities are endless.

Omprakash is based on the idea that positive change is best done through a human connection.  What better premise for your volunteering adventure?
