We dare to be open-minded and optimistic about the possibilities of how this unfolding future can be shaped by every individual working as a changemaker. We are constantly amazed and inspired by the work of changemakers around us.
Ashoka’s Everyone a Changemaker vision includes a deep commitment to advancing equity and inclusion. We believe that new challenges can and must be addressed by EVERYONE acting as creative problem solvers. As a part of our commitment to this value, we make sure that the diverse communities that we work with involve young people as equal co-leaders.
Every day we’re grateful for and inspired by the work and dedication of our diverse set of partners. We see our role as facilitating collaboration and innovation, recognizing that the best solutions come from the people on the ground.
We know that young people today are already under tremendous pressure. Changemaking must not come at the expense of wellbeing. We take the time to invest in the whole person, not just their project or idea, and we are deeply committed to advancing wellbeing for changemakers everywhere.
