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 transform their societies for the better, directly addressing the new inequality facing our societies worldwide.
