Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 1999
This description of Afsan Chowdhury's work was prepared when Afsan Chowdhury was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1999.
Afsan Chowdhury is working to create a system through which sex education, covering topics from the prevention of sexual abuse to greater awareness of human sexuality, can be taught effectively to Bangladeshi youth. He is drawing on family and other social support networks to both inform and help disseminate educational materials and messages that will help change Bangladeshi society's reluctance to address this sensitive issue.
