Why the Ashoka Residency Program?
An Everyone a Changemaker World for us, in Ashoka Romania, means that Ashoka is also you. The image we project of the world is one of deep connections, collaboration and accessibility. Starting with this vision, we have created the Ashoka Residency Program, a 3-month experience addressed to any changemaker in Romania who is curious to embark on a journey that explores the Ashoka universe in a way that will support them to leverage our ecosystem in their own work. The program targets especially people working in the civil society sector, but we welcome everyone from the public or private sectors if they are eager to join us. People who care about various issues, from education in rural areas to protected animal species. They are, by nature, receivers, altruists, caregivers, and valuable collaborators to us.
The goal of this program is to bring Ashoka to an open-source, collaborative framework that will help us open up to changemakers in the ecosystem and allow a larger mass of people to access our resources and opportunities more independently from our local team.
