Ashoka Young Changemakers is a carefully selected network of young people aged 12 - 20 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 organization supports 4000+ Ashoka Fellows who are solving systemic problems in 92+ countries. As the world becomes increasingly unequal, Ashoka's work focuses on tearing down this New Inequality. Ashoka Young Changemakers are at the centre of this effort!

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

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.

In Africa, 22 Ashoka Young Changemakers have been elected. Read about them in detail below:
