On Apr 7, we're proud to have with us 3 Ashoka Fellows - each of them world changing social entrepreneurs - to share their stories on what they do.
Our Special Guests
Joyce Djaelani Gordon (Indonesia)
Joyce is changing the way Indonesia sees and responds to drug abuse and addiction. She learned that in Indonesia drug abuse was more effectively addressed in the context of families and communities, and has created the first integrated and holistic recovery programme that includes aftercare to help young drug users, and involves their families in prevention, public education, and rehabilitation efforts.
Padmanabha Rao (India)
Rama Rao and Padmanabha Rao, directors of RIVER, have developed a learner-guided method to teaching that not only increases learning but also re-engages teachers in their responsibility as educators. They have created an innovative, cost-effective, and proven methodology that results in higher levels of student learning, increased teacher ownership and greater school accountability.
