    This description of Ercan Tutal's work was prepared when Ercan Tutal was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2003.
    Introduction
    Ercan Tutal offers disabled people of all ages and abilities an opportunity to confront and overcome challenges through sports–especially scuba diving. In doing so, they show themselves, their families, neighbors, and the public what they can do, a first step in changing oppressive attitudes and securing greater freedom of opportunity.
