Ashoka Fellow
This description of Claudia Vidigal's work was prepared when Claudia Vidigal was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2010.
Claudia Vidigal is transforming the way childcare workers and the justice system interact with children and adolescents housed in child shelter homes. Claudia is introducing a simple methodology whereby: Children learn to create, share and value their personal life stories; childcare workers find new, simple ways to engage with them at an individual level; and judges can consider the children’s perceived needs and desires in their court cases.
