Ashoka Fellow

Fellow Since 2013
This description of Alexander McLean's work was prepared when Alexander McLean was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2013.
Across much of Africa, people in prisons are closed away from society and stripped of their basic rights, often without having been convicted of a crime. Through education, access to health and nurturing leadership, Alexander Mclean is bringing humanity back into these prison systems and transforming how prisoners are regarded by the public, by prison staff, and by themselves.
