This description of Gerardo Pacheco Gutierrez's work was prepared when Gerardo Pacheco Gutierrez was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1999.
Based on his belief that young people, especially those living on the streets, should have a say in programs created to help them, Gerardo Pacheco promotes his new principle of youth self-management. He helps young people run a home, assist other children living on the streets, and cultivate good relations with previously unsympathetic neighbors.
