Ashoka was founded by Bill Drayton in 1980 and today it is the largest network of social entrepreneurs in the world. The organization has almost 3,000 fellows who work in 70 countries on a range of projects. On the organization's homepage, visitors can look over seven different sections, including Fellows, Focus Areas, Engage, and Give. Within Focus Areas, visitors can look over projects that include Nutrients for All and Full Economic Citizenship, which work to create lasting and meaningful change across a variety of communities. Also, to get a sense of its work in action, the Video Room contains a number of short oral histories and other videos. For those interested in learning more, newsletter subscriptions are an option.
