Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2006
    This description of A.K.M. Maksud's work was prepared when A.K.M. Maksud was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2006.
    Bangladesh has a large population of nomadic communities living along rivers, though these people remain unrecognized by the government and are unable to access basic services like education, health, and social security. A.K.M Maksud is helping these previously unrecognized Bede communities achieve two important rights—the right to education and right to citizenship.
