Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2003
This description of Maria Schejbal's work was prepared when Maria Schejbal was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2003.
Maria Schejbal brings those challenged by disabilities or addictions out of isolation and integrates them as active members of society. By partnering with a network of institutions like social care centers, drug rehabilitation centers, and mental hospitals, she is developing positive joint initiatives that push both the abled and the socially disabled beyond their psychological and physical borders.
