Our friends Ashoka
Ashoka like all things social entrepreneur-ish…& they love to invest in and support individuals with innovative and practical ideas for solving the world's biggest social problems!
Since ’81 they’ve provided over 3,000 leading social entrepreneurs (known as Ashoka Fellows) with support & access to a Global network of peers over 80 countries. It’s pretty cool…
What’s super about Ashoka Fellows is that they inspire others to adopt and spread their innovations, showing others that that they can be powerful Changemakers & make a positive difference in their communities too!
Here’s their inside scoop:
Ashoka are on a mission to create an ‘Everyone a Changemaker’ world - one where everyone has the skills, drive, and resources to push forward solutions to pressing social and environmental problems, and each organization works to maximize the Changemaking potential of its members.
A Changemaker is someone who notices that the world is changing and sees themselves not as an object of change - a person that change happens to - but an agent of change - someone who solves problems and pushes forward progress.
In a world of accelerated change, Ashoka want to address how to better prepare the next generation of leaders to effectively address the world’s daunting social and environmental challenges.
