Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2005
This description of Conceição Paganele's work was prepared when Conceição Paganele was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2005.
Incarcerated youth in Brazil face daily violence and abuse, confined by a system with little respect for their humanity and dignity. Conceição Paganele places the mothers of these young people at the head of a campaign to reform the juvenile justice system and ensure fair, humane rehabilitation for Brazilian youth.
