Education Innovation Programme
As an international organisation specialised in supporting leading Changemakers, Ashoka aims to be the catalyzer and rally point of pioneer and innovative educational initiatives.
Our wish is that every young person has the capacity and the drive to make change for the better, be it within their family, in their community, their country or across the whole world.
We envision a world in which everyone – from the most marginalised to the most privileged – enjoys learning experiences throughout their lives that develop their full potential as active contributors to our collective wellbeing.
For that to happen, it is essential to allow children and young people to develop key qualities such as empathy, creativity, leadership and teamwork.
The Education Innovation Programme selects and supports projects that contribute to the development of these soft skills.
The selected projects benefit from a year-long of tailor-made support as an accelerator for their innovation.
3000 euros to help them improve their communication, buy the necessary equipment, organise events to make their initiatives known, etc.
A follow-up by Ashoka’s team, partners and pro bono experts, aiming to broaden their horizons, to structure the project, to find other means of financing, etc.
Access to a vast network of key players in Belgium and abroad as a means to increase the project’s impact and possibilities of replicability.
