Four Echoing Green Fellows Selected for 2018 Audacious Project Portfolio

This month, TED announced seven projects launching through its new collaborative philanthropic initiative, The Audacious Project. TED, formerly the home of the $1 million TED Prize, is embracing risk to scale big ideas from people and organizations that have been able to demonstrate that they can make change happen in partnership with social entrepreneurs, nonprofit partners, and the public. 

Four Echoing Green Fellows were selected as part of this year's portfolio: Andrew Youn '06, founder of One Acre Fund; Raj Panjabi '11, co-founder of Last Mile Health and Echoing Green board member; and T. Morgan Dixon '13 and Vanessa Garrison '13, co-founders of GirlTrek.

“All of these projects can benefit hugely from a committed community of supporters, cheering them on through thick and thin. Change at scale can’t be something that only rich people dream of. It’s for all of us.” —Chris Anderson, head of TED
