About Us

Ashoka India is an association of leading social entrepreneurs in India. Founded in 1981, we have over 300 social entrepreneurs as Ashoka Fellows, working throughout India making significant contributions in a wide range of fields, from appropriate technology to gender equity, from health care delivery systems to income generation.

Ashoka support Fellows by providing them with living stipends, professional support, and access to a global network of peers in more than 60 countries.

With our community, we develop models for collaboration and design infrastructure needed to advance the field of social entrepreneurship and the citizen sector.

Our Fellows inspire others to adopt and spread their innovations - demonstrating to all citizens that they too have the potential to be powerful changemakers.
