Ashoka Fellow
Canada
Fellow Since 2014

Ahmad Edilbi is introducing a new way to empower, integrate and build social capital in scattered, immigrant populations that have been affected by a political crisis or natural disaster. Using diaspora networks, he enables refugees to play an active and productive role, thus changing their status from helplessness to independence and promoting positive perceptions of refugees. His organization, Dubarah Strat, is expanding this vision by creating settlement centers in 6 countries, starting from Germany.
