What We Are

SPOILER: not a flashy solution,
not a widget to end poverty,
not a buzzwordy facade,
not a neocolonial impulse,
not a voluntourist trap.

Omprakash is a global network of 221 social impact "Partner" organizations in 53 countries and 29,758 people from 138 countries. Our Partners use the network to find volunteers, interns, researchers and donors, as well as to showcase their work to a global audience.

EdGE is a customizable online learning platform designed to support critical reflection, dialogue, and action across differences of culture and power.

Global Dialogue is a unique forum deliberately built to encourage people and organizations from all over the world to bridge chasms of power and culture in order to collaborate on issues relating to global 'development' and social change.

Crowdfunding via Omprakash allows our Partners and EdGE interns to raise funds with little to no fees. Since 2005, we have distributed over $15 million throughout the network. Because Omprakash is a nonprofit, donations are tax-deductible for US-based donors.

The Blog showcases voices from throughout the network, from Partners promoting their recent work to EdGE interns posting their "Record of Perspectives" and final "Capstones." There are always exciting new posts to explore.

Pathways for connection, inspiration, and outward movement.

Jumpstart your gap year, supplement your semester, or prepare for a career shift with our unique combination of global internships (online or in-person), curated curriculum, local engagement, personalized mentorship, and digital storytelling.
