Ashoka is the largest network of social entrepreneurs worldwide, with more than 3000 Ashoka Fellows in about 90 countries

Founded by Bill Drayton in 1980, Ashoka has provided start-up financing, professional support services, and connections to a global network across the business and social sectors, and a platform for people dedicated to changing the world.

Founder Sanjay Kumud Moreshwar Bapat is an Ashoka Fellow in 2003-06 period and he plans to promote Ashoka Fellows across the world.

On his part, the entire amount that the corporate, funding agency or philanthropist gives for its banner on all the 90 odd country pages will be used for online training modules for NGOs across the world whether it is HR policies, Insurance of NGO professionals and social workers, succession planning, branding of NGOs, fund raising .....

Again each of this module will be question and answer session categorywise which means there will be section on Branding where Ad / PR professionals will share how NGOs need to brand themself so that they become more popular with not just donors and volunteers but with potential employees (NGOs anyway will be popular with the communities they serve if the NGO is good, else whatever money is used for branding will be temporary)

Again, each section will have a sponsor and that amount will be used for supporting our global examples and education.

Our research, contacting Ashoka Fellows, Ashoka Offices .. inviting them to share their websites free and global promotion will incur time and money. And all the time & money will be borne by founder.


Ashoka launched the field of social entrepreneurship and has activated multi-sector partners across the world who increasingly look to entrepreneurial talent and new ideas to solve social problems.

Ashoka Fellows remain the core of our community, and their insights show us how the world is moving and what is needed next. Ashoka's mission has evolved beyond catalyzing individual entrepreneurs to enabling an "everyone a changemaker" world. This means equipping more people – including young people - with the skillset and a connection to purpose so that they can contribute ideas and effectively solve problems at whatever scale is needed in their family, community, city, workplace, field, industry, country. This evolution comes from the urgent realization that the pace of change is accelerating in an increasingly complex and interconnected world. Our strategic initiatives focus on setting in motion the people, resources and ecosystems that will bring about a social revolution where everyone contributes to change for the good of all. Working in partnership with private, philanthropic and citizen sector players we are achieving large-scale social innovation that is grounded in decades of entrepreneurial experience.

To advance an Everyone a Changemaker world, where anyone can apply the skills of changemaking to solve complex social problems.

To support social entrepreneurs who are leading and collaborating with changemakers, in a team of teams model that addresses the fluidity of a rapidly evolving society. Ashoka believes that anyone can learn and apply the critical skills of empathy, team work, leadership and changemaking to be successful in the modern world.

Ashoka has operations in 91 odd countries
These are from Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, South America

Brief information about Sanjay Kumud Moreshwar Bapat,
founder of CSRidentity.com
Sanjay Kumud Moreshwar Bapat is an Ashoka Fellow and is taking the top banner of the ASHOKA forum.

He has decided to help brand ASHOKA and wants to brand Ashoka Fellows across the world and the NGOs / NPOs formed by Ashoka Fellows will be one of the first to be shared in say 10000 NGOs across the world issuewise. Plus of course, NGOs will be shared issuewise in related forum. (For India, we have issuewise forum and for countries other than India, we plan to share only issue because we want to form the identity of any nation based on how its citizen's social, health & climate issues are taken care of.
If an NGO founded by an ASHOKA fellow works in more than 1 social issue, we will share them in those issues.

We will of course not share if any of the fellows is an activist or works against the government.

We can not put for profit organisations. e.g. founder Sanjay Kumud Moreshwar Bapat was selected as ASHOKA Fellow for his for profit social enterprise. After an almost fatal accident on 28.08.2013, his focus has increased. From just India, his company which manages CSRidentity.com now cover the entire world.

But roots are toots. So he devotes substantial time to Developed Network Network Trust, the NGO he formed in 2009. He is a Chief Trustee and he believes that every organisation must ensure their own sustainability, which means not for profits must have sufficient corpus so that they can wait to get funds for at least one year if there is no funding because they are committed to communities.

Any corporate, funding agency, donor can take the right side on every page of the Ashoka forum for a donation to Developed Nation Network Trust, our NGO which has FCRA and 80 G.
The donation will be used for development activities of Global examples, Thane and expenses towards promotion of a professional training module on management aspects of NGOs across the world..
The module is free for all the NGOs but we need to promote it across the world, hence fees.
