Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2008
This description of Didier Ketels's work was prepared when Didier Ketels was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2008.
Didier Ketels founded Droits Quotidiens to train social workers as legal intermediaries who simplify the law and help disadvantaged groups resolve legal disputes quickly and fairly. His approach prevents disadvantaged people from getting caught in the bureaucracy of social and legal help for matters such as housing, debt repayment, or health and family problems—many of which can be worked out without ever needing a lawyer.
