All of our programs in these areas contribute to Ashoka's vision and mission; all understand the historical transformation of the citizen sector taking place and are building upon that understanding.

Ashoka's levels are mutually reinforcing; together they are bringing our vision of “Everyone a Changemaker” closer to reality.
