Ashoka is the global association of the world’s leading social entrepreneurs
- men and women with system changing solutions for the world’s most urgent social problems.
We strive to shape a global, entrepreneurial, competitive citizen sector: one that allows social entrepreneurs to thrive and enables the world’s citizens to think and act as Change Makers.
We envision an Everyone A Changemaker™ world: a world that responds quickly and effectively to social challenges, and where each individual has the freedom, confidence and societal support to address any social problem and drive change.
Since 1981, Ashoka has elected almost 3,000 leading social entrepreneurs as Ashoka Fellows
, providing them with living stipends, professional support, and access to a global network of peers in 70 countries
