Ashoka Young Changemakers is a carefully selected network of young people who have found their power to create change for the good of all and are ready to take on their next big role as co-leaders of the global Everyone a Changemaker movement.

Ashoka is the world's largest network of Social Entrepreneurs and Changemakers. Founded in 1981 and headquartered in Arlington, VA, the organisation supports 4000+ Ashoka Fellows who are solving systemic problems in 92+ countries. As the world is becoming increasingly unequal, Ashoka's work is now focused on tearing down this New Inequality. Ashoka Young Changemakers are at the centre of this effort!

Having already launched their own initiatives, built teams, and created positive change in their communities, these young changemakers are best positioned to steer this movement and to reimagine how we define 'success' for individuals, communities, and countries.

Our new cohort of Ashoka Young Changemakers from India address a plethora of issues: environment, gender, health, ageing, education, child rights, agriculture, arts & culture, and animal rights among others. Moreover, their efforts have already activated hundreds of young people to become changemakers in solving these and many other complex challenges in their communities.

As new members of the larger Ashoka Network, these powerful young people are now tasked with building partnerships, mobilizing systems, and enabling tens of thousands of young people to kickstart their life-changing journey towards becoming empathetic entrepreneurs & intrapreneurs who can thrive in an exponentially changing world.

The Ashoka Young Changemakers programme in India is made possible by the support of our partners Mphasis F1 Foundation and IKEA Foundation.
