Who's a VONGster?
VONG celebrates the passion and individuality of youth and believe that they can inspire a change.
VONG encourages them and provides them a platform to enhance their understanding of critical themes including climate change, clean and affordable renewable energy, ethics, equality- equity, clean water, zero hunger, etc.
VONGsters are the youth, usually in the age rage of 13 to 18 years, to start with in India and soon joined by a global community. They are the voice of the new generation who are standing up to secure their right to good health, quality education, and a clean planet. They are the ones who inspire and influence the authorities and become social auditors of the policies and programs already implemented.
VONGsters are the catalysts that set in motion a movement for societal transformation towards sustainable living, not only saving the planet but also keeping it safe.
We can make a difference - let’s start now!
Start your journey with VONG
The rapid industrial and technological development is depleting Earth’s natural resources, and the catastrophic consequences of environmental degradation are clearly visible to all.
However, development and environment need to be seen as complementary and not in antagonistic terms. The world needs its citizens to have the necessary knowledge, values, attitudes, and skills to build resilient and prosperous communities.
Educating society about Sustainable Development is the need of the hour. We invite you to be a part of this Movement and bring about real changes that world needs now.
VONG gives the new generation a common platform to express ideas, find like-minded people, and develop synergies. Our Vongsters learn about improving communication skills, enhancing teamwork, building partnerships, and thinking critically. VONG encourages them to enhance their understanding of critical themes including climate change, clean and affordable renewable energy, ethics, equality- equity, clean water, zero hunger, etc.
We develop platforms that help Vongsters engage with communities and domain experts through summits, panel discussions, debates, and focused research – individually and in teams. We use gamification methods to enhance the experience of these platforms. We also utilise social media to help nurture their voice for change.

At Omysha Foundation, we are passionate about making our vision a reality.

Accordingly, we expect our Vongsters to embody this dream.
