Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2009
This description of Michael Stenger's work was prepared when Michael Stenger was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2009.
Recognizing the systematic discrimination that underage asylum seekers experience Michael is providing young refugees a chance for education and integration into German society while also changing negative public perceptions towards this group. By establishing and spreading a cost efficient and effective private school system for this highly discriminated group, Michael develops the individual skills and potentials of youth refugees throughout Germany. Having successfully established his SchlaU schools in Munich with 145 students, Michael is expanding throughout Bavaria, Germany's largest state.
