Ashoka's mission is to develop the profession of social entrepreneurship around the world. Ashoka invests in people. It is a global non-profit organization that searches the world for social entrepreneurs - individuals with unprecedented ideas for change in their communities.
Ashoka identifies and invests in these social entrepreneurs through stipends and professional services that allow "Ashoka Fellows" to focus fulltime on their ideas for leading social change in education and youth development, health care, environment, human rights, access to technology and economic development. David Green, the Executive Director of Project Impact is an Ashoka fellow.
