Anselm Rosario

Ashoka Fellow


This profile was prepared when Anselm Rosario was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1989.
Anselm Rosario has been working with runaway or abandoned street-dwelling children who survive as scavengers in the South Indian city of Bangalore since the mid-1980s. He is developing and demonstrating non-institutional ways of helping them adjust and grow by working with individual youngsters at the micro level, by encouraging cross-agency collaboration, and by developing new recycling programs that promise to provide both these young scavengers and the programs serving them a viable economic base.
