Introducing Five New Ashoka Fellows in the U.S.!
|Cindy Kaplan |
Cindy is improving the nutritional outcomes of children living without permanent families by recognizing that trauma changes their nutritional needs and by focusing on both what they eat and how they are fed.
|Cristi Hegranes |
Cristi is developing a new, better quality, and more sustainable model of international affairs journalism that is rooted in the perspective of local communities.
Kevin is building the infrastructure for a chronic care model of addiction recovery that engages communities and employers alike, breaks down silos between the two, and de-stigmatizes this age-old disease.
|Pam Cantor |
Pam is reengineering high-poverty schools to respond to the recurring challenges to student and school readiness for learning and growth, arising from the traumatic impact of poverty.
|Susan Sygall |
Susan is reimagining the meaning of full citizenship for people with disabilities by moving people from the concept of inclusion to infiltration in the context of international development.
|Ashoka is a network of high impact social entrepreneurs, invited to the Fellowship due to their pattern-setting ideas, entrepreneurial skill, and ability to set in place new norms at a national scale. As a whole we tackle some of the world's most pressing challenges, and in the process, pave the way for future changemakers. |
Special thanks to John Ordway, Susan Stevenson, James Sturdevant, Ryan Blitstein, Al Etmanski and Smitha Hanumantha – the trend-spotters who brought these social entrepreneurs to Ashoka's attention.
