Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2000
This description of Lely Zailani's work was prepared when Lely Zailani was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2000.
Lely has used radio to help stimulate the creation of rural womens' organizations that are broadly based and are run by the rural women themselves. In her approach there is a balance between the educational component, and the leadership development component, which is not just media-driven, but rather the result of a lengthy process of consultation and facilitation.
