Ashoka Africa Testimonial
Founded in 1980, Ashoka is the oldest and largest global network of system-changing social entrepreneurs. It has been at the forefront of developing the field of social entrepreneurship – supporting over 3,700 social innovators in 92 countries through a life-time fellowship, financially and non-financially.
Ashoka is highly experienced in identifying, connecting and scaling-up solutions to socio-economic challenges. It has a presence in over 23 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa and has supported over 460 African social entrepreneurs since 1990. Ashoka also aims to transform the lifestyles of young people and how they grow up, so that each individual has the power to think and act as changemakers.
Looking to expand its operations in South Africa, Ashoka sourced Mauve Group’s Employer of Record solution to employ a worker without having to set up its own local entity. Josephine Nzerem, Regional Director of Ashoka Anglophone West Africa, expanded on her experience of working with Mauve Group.
