This description of Bouda Blandine's work was prepared when Bouda Blandine was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2012.
Blandine is transforming the image of the most marginalized women in extreme poverty through economic empowerment, education and improved health. She is starting with one of the least respected groups of women – traditional beer producers – and is making them a model example of successful, educated, environmentally conscious and socially aware women through a portfolio of innovations.
