Ashoka Foundation (2)

Dear Kris:

I can assure you that Ashoka is a very credible and highly ethi-
cal organisation. Please visit the website http://www.ashoka.org

Ashoka identifies and supports social entrepreneurs in several
countries across the world, providing them critical resources,
support and linkages at a period when these individuals are at
their most dire need. As Jeff pointed out, it is principally
through the work of Ashoka and its founder Bill Drayton, that
the concept of social entrepreneurship has caught on round the
world - to the point that today several Ivy League colleges in
the US and elsewhere offer courses in social entrepreneurship.

And you are right, the selection process for fellows is quite
rigorous and can span several months.

Please feel free to visit the Ashoka website provided above and
to contact the Ashoka headquarters in Arlington, USA directly.
