Thomas Blettery


Thomas is an enthusiastic intrapreneur in the fields of Social Entrepreneurship and Changemaker Education.

After launching a humanitarian non-profit serving Peruvian orphans at the age of 16, he realized 15 years ago the power of social entrepreneurship by contributing to the creation of a social bakery empowering Dalit people in Chennai, India. This transformative experience made him realize the power of learning how to fish compared to just giving a fish. Until he stumbled upon Ashoka – the world’s pioneer network of system-changing social entrepreneurs – and discovered how nearly 4,000+ women and men across the world are positively transforming entire fields to bring about lasting social change.

He joined Ashoka in 2010 and is, since then, investing his energy in making Ashoka’s vision a reality: creating a world where everyone is inclined and equipped to become a changemaker.
