Ashoka Fellow

Fellow Since 2005
    This description of Cybele Oliveira Amado's work was prepared when Cybele Oliveira Amado was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2005.
    Introduction
    Cybele Amado believes that every child in Brazil deserves an excellent public education. To make her goal a reality, Cybele is creating a new set of social structures that encourages continuous learning and empowers communities to work with elected officials in ensuring quality education. Perhaps most critically, these new structures foster accountability and continuity whose absence has contributed much to the dismal state of today’s education system.
