Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2014
    This description of Celal Karadogan's work was prepared when Celal Karadogan was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2014.
    Bringing a fresh new alternative to Turkey’s segregated approach to disability and youth, Celal Karadogan creates spaces and experiences for youth with and without disabilities to overcome their barriers, to experience the power of solidarity and to realize their full potentials, both physically and mentally. In his club, disabled youth find opportunities to lead active and meaningful lives, while youth without disabilities develop empathy and the ability to live with differences.
