Fellow Since 2014
This description of Lauren Diaz Arias's work was prepared when Lauren Diaz Arias was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2014.
Lauren Diaz aims to transform prisons in Costa Rica into true rehabilitation centers, as they are originally meant to be, and with this, empower inmates, decrease recidivism and develop a more empathic society that understands and reintegrates ex-convicts, keeping them away from crime.
