There are three central tenants to the Changemaker Schools programme:


  1. SELECTING SCHOOLS: We have adapted our methodology for selecting the world’s leading social entrepreneurs to identify and recruit a global network of Changemaker Schools that share our vision, and have a track record of innovation and influence.

  2. SUPPORTING SCHOOLS: Changemaker Schools join a global community of innovative schools with the opportunity to share knowledge and experiences and collaborate on programmes. They are also connected with leading social entrepreneurs to explore the implementation of new programmes and methodologies.

  3. DISSEMINATING BEST PRACTICES: Ashoka is aggregating and disseminating the best examples of innovative education practices from across the world through its online platform and media partnerships.   


Changemaker Schools also have the collective belief that every teacher and every individual in a family and community has the capacity to be a Changemaker. Changemaker Schools encourage the passionate belief in the transformational effect of education amongst all its stakeholders. A Change Leader in a Changemaker School is willing to reflect critically on current practices, processes and ideas in knowledge and be curious about their ways of being in the world.
