Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2016
This description of Enrique Grapa Markuschamer's work was prepared when Enrique Grapa Markuschamer was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2016.
Enrique is transforming the paradigm surrounding the mental disability in Mexico. By exposing the mentally disabled to the society and facilitating their independent adult life, Enrique is working to show the true value of these individuals as equally capable human beings. Through his organization Fundacion Incluyeme, adults with mental disability learn to work, commute, do chores, and live with roommates, through which they grasp the true meaning of self-determination.
