Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2014
This description of Beatriz Diuk's work was prepared when Beatriz Diuk was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2014.
Through short sessions of playful reading and writing practice, Beatriz Diuk is catching up illiterate children with their peers and alleviating frustrated teachers by providing them with simple tools to address this gap. By approaching the problem of illiteracy as one of the education system, not as an inherent quality of “poor children,” she is changing perspectives and turning those who are furthest behind into successful learners.
