Biography

In 2003 Newey co-founded a local non-profit in Bangkok to support young people to start projects or businesses that address their communities’ needs with seed grants, training and mentorship. Next, in 2006, she joined Ashoka (ashoka.org) to run a similar program called “Youth Venture” in Thailand with the aim to continue to increase the number of young changemakers and set up systems for long-term support. She also launched other initiatives to promote social entrepreneurship among non-profits and business in the region.

In 2017 Newey spinned off from Ashoka under the name School of Changemakers to further build support systems for changemakers in Thailand by running social incubation program and promoting changemaking education in schools and universities.
