What Ashoka does


Ashoka builds and cultivates a community of Fellows, Young Changemakers, Changemaker Institutions, and beyond who see that the world now requires everyone to be a changemaker – a person that sees themselves as capable of creating large-scale change.

Together, we mobilize and accelerate a movement to build an "Everyone a Changemaker" world: where everyone has the right and ability to co-lead solutions that transform their societies for the better (directly addressing the rise of a new inequality in changemaking worldwide)
