Ashoka supports ideas and develops initiatives in every field of human need, from microfinance to water management to children's health. Much of our work around the globe falls into six major fields—civic engagement, economic development, health, human rights, environment, and learning/youth development—although we recognize that many new ideas cut across multiple fields or aim to create new ones.

Led by the work of our Fellows, we strive to define and advance the innovations in each field, challenging old methods and investing in new strategies with the potential for long-lasting systemic change.
