Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2012
This description of Julie Carney's work was prepared when Julie Carney was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2012.
Julie Carney is broadening the scope of healthcare centers at the village level in Rwanda to include healthcare and agriculture in a bid to provide long-term, homegrown and community-led solutions to the endemic problem of malnutrition. Julie is demonstrating a powerful new way of leveraging synergies between two sectors—which have traditionally operated independently of each other and, at some level, counterproductively—to address a complex problem that to her, requires a multi-sector approach.
