Ashoka is the first and largest network of leading social innovators in the world. Founded in 1980, Ashoka pioneered and helped establish the field of social entrepreneurship. There are now over 3,500 Ashoka Fellows in 93 countries who are working in all fields – from health and human rights to education and the environment. Ashoka is helping accelerate the pace of change by finding social entrepreneurs and providing them with personal stipends, professional support services, connections to a global network, and a platform for people dedicated to changing the world.
Since 2013, Ashoka has been electing Ashoka Fellows from the Philippines. They are currently involved in the Youth Years programme aimed at building a community dedicated to transforming education by focusing on holistic growth.
