Ashoka Changemaker Schools enable their students to become changemakers: young people with the skills and confidence to change the world for the good of all.
For 35 years, Ashoka has pioneered the field of social entrepreneurship - finding, selecting and supporting some of the world's leading social entrepreneurs. Our network of over 3,000 Ashoka Fellows is successfully implementing system-changing solutions to human and environmental problems in almost every area of need, in 85 countries.
Ashoka aims to catalyse changes throughout schools and the wider education system, so that every young person is provided with an education experience that is explicitly designed to foster changemaker skills.
