Ashoka Programs in Romania
For 3 years Ashoka Romania has been building a network of top social innovators in Romania. We have already selected 6 Ashoka Fellows that generate systemic changes in areas such as health, journalism, nature conservation, civic participation, the fight against human trafficking, and building the identity of Roma women. We create an ecosystem in which social innovators can grow: an environment in which the legal and social framework is in order, an environment in which their work becomes visible and an environment that supports their plans for social change through knowledge, strategic partnerships, mentoring, financial instruments, ideas, and commitment.
Ashoka's Priorities and Theory of Change
Ashoka focuses on four strategic priorities to help people understand and adapt to a world of accelerating change, where everyone is called on to be a leader:
Ashoka selects world-class social entrepreneurs who are leading the way to an everyone-a-changemaker world.
Empathy & Young Changemaking
Ashoka is leading a movement to transform how young people grow up so they thrive in today’s rapidly changing world where everyone must be a changemaker. Changemaking starts with empathy.
