El Caracol, AC
This description of Juan Martín Pérez García's work was prepared when Juan Martín Pérez García was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2008.
Juan Martín Pérez García founded an organization of professional street educators, El Caracol, A.C., and has developed an intervention model to work with street populations based on a human rights framework. He is persuading both Mexican and international citizen organizations and governments to adopt his model, which breaks completely with the patterns of paternalism commonly found within this field.
