Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2010
    This description of Hildegard Schooss's work was prepared when Hildegard Schooss was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2010.
    Hildegard Schooß recreates community-based forms of care, volunteering and entrepreneurship in uniquely designed multigenerational houses. With hundreds of such centers across Germany, her program is a powerful antidote to individualism, isolation and exclusion that often characterize urban life by providing mothers, children, and the elderly with a vital space for community members to incubate new programs, services and businesses to serve their needs.
