Ashoka fellow (2010).

An organisation aimed at social inclusion and community promotion that develops socio-educational projects for children and pre-employment pathways for early school leavers who neither have resources, nor expectations. A flexible, creative methodology that encourages community agents to respond to new demands, incorporating educational models as education in values and learning through service.
