Fabienne joined Ashoka to develop the organization’s impact in the German-speaking part of Switzerland with Carol Schafroth. She has always been intrigued by the international cooperation of different actors, which are aiming to achieve progress through improving people’s lives all over the world. This motivated her to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in International Relations and a Master’s degree in Development Studies all while volunteering in various organizations such as the Red Cross, euforia and ROCK YOUR LIFE!. Driven by a strong sense for social responsibility, she gained most of her professional experience in the non-profit sector where she was working for the International Organisation for Migration, “terre des hommes” and the foundation “Swiss Youth in Science”. She is an initiator of IDEAO - the Global Platform for Innovation, an educational start-up for developing countries.
