Changemakers, as a concept, have its roots in the idea of individuals or groups who actively work towards bringing positive social, environmental, or systemic change. The history behind Changemakers can be traced back to various movements, initiatives, and individuals who have played pivotal roles in driving transformative change throughout history. One notable historical figure who embodies the spirit of a Changemaker is Mahatma Gandhi. His nonviolent resistance and fight for India’s independence from British colonial rule inspired millions and brought about significant social and political change.
