This description of Claudia Cabral's work was prepared when Claudia Cabral was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2007.
As a psychologist with a life-long drive to assist the huge numbers of children in living in Brazil’s shelters and streets and suffering from domestic violence, Claudia Cabral has developed a methodology to either re-integrate children back into their families or create a network of people and services to support the children. Claudia has introduced an emphasis on the importance of family in youth development to government, civil society agencies, and related organizations.
