Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2003
This description of Abdul Wadood's work was prepared when Abdul Wadood was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2003.
Abdul Wadood is reaching the poorest third of Pakistan's population with nonfinancial services that he has adapted from existing poverty alleviation models. His aggressive expansion plan relies on engaged young people in poor communities. Eventually, he plans to link them in a national effort that will change the way donor agencies and the government go about designing and implementing poverty-reduction schemes.
