This description of Babloo Loitongbam's work was prepared when Babloo Loitongbam was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2000 .


Based in the violence-torn state of Manipur, Babloo Loitongbam has designed a human rights curriculum that equips traditional village institutions to organize in new ways against the growing human rights challenges in the region. Simultaneously, Babloo is internationalizing grassroots responses to the issue, by opening up citizen s access to the international human rights movement. By building this local-global bridge, Babloo aims to create a new human rights environment in Manipur that is transparent, decentralized, and quick-to-respond.
