This sparked the idea of Omprakash, a nonprofit based on "... the idea that positive social change must begin with human relationships."
The organization's 2011 report notes their successes:
We helped hundreds of inspired individuals travel abroad to volunteer with our Partners during 2010, and many of them chose to fundraise in their home communities on behalf of our Partners.
In 2010, this decentralized fundraising model allowed the Omprakash network to provide its Partners with over $330,000 – an increase of nearly 400% from the total funds we provided to Partners in 2009. The largest portion of these funds went to projects carrying out relief work in response to the past year’s devastating natural disasters in Haiti and South Asia. Other funds went towards causes as diverse as teacher salaries in Tibet and school construction in Tanzania
