Sanergy Joins Ashoka!
These are exciting times for us here at Sanergy. We are ecstatic to have been chosen as an Ashoka Fellow. We now join a network of 3,000 social entrepreneurs in over 70 countries around the world. Ashoka fellows are selected on the basis of their social enterprise models that provide an opportunity and framework from which they tackle various challenges world over. Some of Sanergy’s best partners, such as WASH United and Kiva, and mentors, such as Root Capital, are already in the network.
Ashoka has had an impressive record in pioneering social entrepreneurship, helping entrepreneurs create lasting, systems-based change, and developing all teammates at an organization into change makers, and we look forward to benefiting from their vast network and resources. For example, we can’t wait to to learn from and share valuable insights with Jane Weru and her team at the Akiba Mashinani Trust to develop urban slums into healthy, prosperous communities. On the publicity front, Ashoka has spread the word on our work through the Virgin Unite website!
Thanks to Ashoka for their firm belief in both social entrepreneurship and Sanergy. We value their partnership and support as we seek to move from strength to strength.
