This description of Auro Lescher's work was prepared when Auro Lescher was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2008.
In Brazil, as in many other countries in the developing world, the public has come to regard street children as an intractable problem for which there can be little remedy. By focusing on the children’s frequently overlooked psychological and emotional needs, Auro Lescher is helping children to escape the streets.
