Team


Ashoka’s mission is to build a world where everyone can become a changemaker. In order to get there, we have to work together with Higher Education Institutions to create a better future. Mutual cooperation underpins the program- schools and colleges create a nurturing environment for students and foster changemaking skills, and Ashoka provides access to a variety of social innovation opportunities including the art of teaching, developing, and supporting changemaking skills in our future leaders. This is why we have created the Ashoka Journey to Changemaker Certificate – the J2CC.
