Ashoka's DNA

Ashoka has found over the last 40 years that supporting a world where everyone can make a change in their cultures and societies requires a focus on three foundational pillars:


Social Entrepreneurship

Ashoka sees advancing social entrepreneurship as the way to an equal and just society: one where everyone can create a change from their root causes, and serve as models for driving change in our world.

Empathy & Young Changemaking

Ashoka sees it as vital for young people to grow up learning how to make a change in today’s rapidly changing world. Making that change starts with the ability to see beyond themselves: empathy.

Organizing for a Changemaker World

Ashoka sees that living in a world where everyone drives change requires a new way of organizing: where we break through walls between sectors of our society, and work together in fluid, open, and communicative teams.
