Supporting Government Stewardship

VillageReach and Spring Impact, in collaboration with government, funders and social impact organizations from 16 countries, have co-created a tool to support government ownership of solutions.

The tool has three sections:

  • Setting out: preparing for the journey and embracing radical collaboration among government, social impact organizations and funders;
  • The Mindset: understanding the mindset shift required to let governments take the lead in identifying problems and designing and implementing solutions for use in the public sector;
  • The Journey: exploring the five stages of this journey to scale, including how to mobilize collaborators, and how to co-create, execute, re-align and eventually embed solutions into the public sector.

Watch a video walkthrough as part of the Ashoka “Working With Government as a Pathway to Systems Change” online course.

To launch the journey tool, please click on the image above or here. The Mindset Section is also available as a stand-alone file by clicking here. If you are interested in recommendations for how to use this tool or have suggestions on how to improve it please contact us at
