The One Degree Foundation is a registered, internationally recognized nonprofit youth organization that mentors young people towards active citizenship and social entrepreneurship. We transform ideas to actions, creating one superhero at a time.
Since our inception in 2006, we have implemented 90 projects and mentored 6500 youth through education, arts, advocacy, community service and social enterprises.
If you’ve got a passion to change the world or have an innovative idea, become a part of our family today. We love misfits, geeks, music buffs, backbenchers, nerds and the absolutely crazy ones who drive us mad – we believe you’re awesome.

“My greatest memories with 1dI as a volunteer was singing songs out loud to children or painting classroom walls. I have learnt to make great friends and found a place I can call home.”
“With One Degree Initiative Foundation, I have not only inspired myself, but am learning to inspire others in my school as well.”
“From the mentorship programs of One Degree Initiative Foundation, I realized that more importance should be put on the solution of a problem rather than complaining about it.”
“My favorite teacher is Fatimah who taught me Bangla, Enlgish, Math, General Knowledge History and much more in the Haate Khori 2014 classes. English is my favorite subject. I dream to become an English teacher one day and to teach everyone this beautiful language!”
“I participated in 100 Smiles 2013 where I met the bhaias and apus. I made new friends, played with balloons and spent a wonderful time. For the first time, I didn’t spend the day selling flowers – and 100 Smiles will always be special to me. “
