This description of David Fortune's work was prepared when David Fortune was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1997.
David Fortune is reintegrating the children and youth living on the streets into their families and communities. His novel approach mobilizes and engages families and communities to effectively address the circumstances that propel kids to live on the streets. His efforts are the first in South Africa to systematically consider both the needs of street kids and those of their families.
