Ashoka Fellow
This description of Jörg Richert's work was prepared when Jörg Richert was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2015.
Through creating new ways of engagement and thus a new public profile for children and youth living on the street, Jörg effectively changes how we as a society perceive and interact with street-youth, so as to broaden positive perspectives about the group of often traumatized youngsters. He successfully provides the space and resources for one to actively shape not only their own life, but also construct a platform for change in the political framework they live in, allowing them to find and fulfill their participating and constructive role in society.
