Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2017
This description of Louis-Xavier Leca's work was prepared when Louis-Xavier Leca was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2017.
Louis-Xavier fights against social exclusion by building a solidarity network between small business owners, neighbors and homeless people that recreates social ties at a micro level. Through this new framework, Louis-Xavier manages to embed social inclusion into the citizen’s everyday life while giving to the homeless the opportunity to take on an active role in their own social reintegration. With already hundreds of active citizens involved, Louis-Xavier heads towards a society in which fighting against exclusion is a fully shared concern.
