About Ofok NGO:
Ofok is a NGO, working on a self sustainable model and taking full advantage of the opportunities presented by the development initiatives taking place worldwide. Ofok stands for "Horizon" on the Arabic language, summarizing the passion toward creating a brighter future, delivering a message of Hope and Change to communities through strengthening one of the main development pillars; Education, using Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) as tools to spread and facilitate knowledge accessibility.
Ofok's mission is to help communities empower themselves, and to enable individuals especially find employment and develop their careers. Ofok is launching its initiatives toward narrowing the knowledge gap between developed and developing worlds through immunizing youth with the ICTs to be able to connect global experiences with local entrepreneurship to create customized solutions for communities using available resources.
Ofok Human Development Initiative:
Ofok's dedication to ICT (Information and Communications Technology) development and entrepreneurship ensures that today's young people become the leaders of tomorrow by attaining the right leadership skills and the latest knowledge of technology.
No doubt that any development must first start with the individual; but sharing knowledge and the application of powerful solutions to real life problems can only take place if an effective human network exists. The formula for community development, therefore, is as follows:
"Human Development + Human Networks = Community Development"
