    This description of Boubacar Doumbia's work was prepared when Boubacar Doumbia was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2008.
    Boubacar Doumbia has adapted traditional production techniques for textiles to create a system of apprenticeship that incorporates youth into professional society. After training and working with other young apprentices, youth are better able to independently produce and make decisions. Boubacar is creating employment by facilitating youth to become entrepreneurs.
