Ashoka's Changemakers announce semifinalists for its competition “Property Rights: Identity, Dignity & Opportunity for All”

Greetings from Ashoka’s Changemakers!

Land is one of the greatest assets of the world’s poor. Securing rights to this asset provides people with life-altering benefits—economic opportunity, enhanced identity, and personal dignity. Yet more than a billion people around the world live without these rights, unable to prove who they are and what they own.
