VV's Founding Director Jessica Mayberry recently received a fellowship form Ashoka Foundation. Read her profile here . More than 30 years ago, Ashoka’s founder coined the term ‘social entrepreneur.’ The award VV’s Jessica has won is one of the most distinguished awards someone in the social sector can receive. Ashoka describes its work and what it aims to catalyze with these words ‘Ashoka is leading a profound transformation in society. In the past three decades, the global citizen sector, led by social entrepreneurs, has grown exponentially. Just as the business sector experienced a tremendous spurt in productivity over the last century, the citizen sector is experiencing a similar revolution, with the number and sophistication of citizen organizations increasing dramatically. Rather than leaving societal needs for the government or business sectors to address, social entrepreneurs are creating innovative solutions, delivering extraordinary results, and improving the lives of millions of people. It is this insight into the power of social entrepreneurs that led Bill Drayton to found Ashoka in 1980 and that continues to guide Ashoka today.’ Video Volunteers is honored to receive this award. Jessica says the award reflects the innovation that is at the heart of VV’s work and the “creative and community-centered approach we take to problem solving.”
