The Beginning of a Lifelong Journey of Maternal Health Innovation

Posted on

Believe it or not, the Young Champions’ fellowships have come to an end. The end of the program, however, hardly means the end of the Young Champions’ journeys as social entrepreneurs in the maternal health field. This program has birthed 15 innovative entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs who will undoubtedly redefine the field of maternal health. In their final blogs, the Young Champions detail how their experiences working for an organization in an entirely unique culture from their own has shaped their ideas for their own social ventures. Thank you for following the Young Champions’ blogs over the past 9 months. We hope that you will continue to follow each of them as they begin this next exciting chapter of their journeys as social entrepreneurs. You can learn more about Ashoka, the Maternal Health Task Force, and the individual Young Champions here. Enjoy these final blog posts!
