This description of Diane Pereira Sousa's work was prepared when Diane Pereira Sousa was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2018.
Diane Sousa is changing the demand of children and young people for the human right to play and to practice different sports in a safe and inclusive way in marginalized rural and urban areas by the resignification of community spaces (squares and schools). With innovative methodologies, she wants to form a generation of changemakers who take ownership of their rights and thereby participate in local decision-making.
