Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 1994
This description of Abu Taleb Talukder's work was prepared when Abu Taleb Talukder was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1994.
Abu Taleb Talukder is training individuals to transform many of Bangladesh's nearly two million ponds into organized pearl cultivation centers. What is revolutionary about his approach is that the project not only encourages the economic development of Bangladesh's rural population through pearl cultivation but also provides an opportunity for training and education and a valuable source of protein.
