Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2005
This description of Liliana Mayo's work was prepared when Liliana Mayo was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2005.
For 25 years, Liliana Mayo has been demonstrating that persons with “different abilities” can integrate themselves into regular schools, the labor force, and the community. Through the educational model developed in her learning center, Liliana helps children with intellectual disabilities develop the functional abilities necessary to become largely independent, productive and happy in all the stages of their lives. In this process, Liliana works closely with families and employers to generate mutual respect and understanding.
