Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 1998
This description of Alexis Ponce's work was prepared when Alexis Ponce was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1998.
Alexis Ponce is transforming the human rights movement in Ecuador by engaging young people in one-on-one commitments to attend to the practical and emotional needs of disadvantaged people whose human rights have been violated. His voluntary "adoption" program reaches otherwise-ignored groups and trains a new generation of youth to recognize and fight for human rights.
