Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2009
This description of Jozef Mikloško's work was prepared when Jozef Mikloško was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2009.
In a region of the world where children are too often separated from their families and institutionalized—and have been for decades—Jozef Mikloško has developed a “family first” model of child welfare that has the potential to radically reform state practices across Central and Eastern Europe. Jozef works to keep or reunite children with their families, encourage a culture of kinship and foster care, and bring about legal changes more favorable to families and healthy childhood development.
