FACTS & FIGURES

At the core of Ashoka´s challenge is the question of how to change systems, what it needs to do so and how to engage partners in an impactful way.

Our approach to solving these issues is the Ashoka Visionary Program.

  • It has become the engagement platform to build trust, support and cooperation.
  • It builds social capital that unleashes financial capital, ideas and collaborations, establishing strong ties through transformational experiences and weak ties that boost our credibility amongst our stakeholders.
  • It cultivates the space for changemakers to meet across sectors, co-creating solutions using the Ashoka toolkits and network and helps implementing this know-how into practice, generating real outcome.
