Ashoka elected its first Saudi Arabia Fellow, the first Fellow elected in the Gulf region, in 2007. To date, Ashoka has elected three Saudi Arabia Fellows to its global community. As leading social entrepreneurs, our Saudi Arabia Fellows provide systems-changing and locally-based solutions in the fields of education and women’s empowerment.
Ashoka continues to seek further expansion of our Fellowship community and social entrepreneurship advocacy into Saudi Arabia and the Gulf region.
Ashoka’s presence in Saudi Arabia is facilitated by Ashoka Arab World, Ashoka’s regional office based out of Cairo.
