Ashoka is the world’s largest network of social entrepreneurs. We identify and support the world’s leading social entrepreneurs, learn from the patterns in their innovations and mobilize a global community that embraces these new frameworks to build an “Everyone A Changemaker world”
Founded in 1981 by Bill Drayton, our work in Africa started in 1990, currently with about 500 Ashoka Fellows in 20 countries.
The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities. We create friendly knowledge and understanding between the people of the UK and other countries. We do this by making a positive contribution to the UK and the countries we work with – changing lives by creating opportunities, building connections and engendering trust.
We work with over 100 countries across the world in the fields of arts and culture, English language, education and civil society. Last year we reached over 75 million people directly and 758 million people overall including online, broadcasts and publications. Founded in 1934, we are a UK charity governed by Royal Charter and a UK public body.
