Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2018
This description of Zafer Elcik's work was prepared when Zafer Elcik was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2018.
Despite the improvements in tools to democratize the resources, there has not been a holistic movement in place for the education needs of children with special needs in Turkey. Stuck in a vicious cycle of lack of education and integration, these children and their families often find themselves in closed environments, be it private schools or their own homes. By closing the gap between children in different learning cycles, Zafer and his team are creating a hub of solutions both for the children and their families.
