Fellow Since 1989
This description of Marta esteves de almeida Gil's work was prepared when Marta esteves de almeida Gil was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1989.
Marta is setting up an information system for the physically, mentally and sensorially disabled. The system will collect, produce, and disseminate important information for this currently neglected sector of the population, and with this service, Marta expects to influence public policy, thus improving the quality of life and citizenship of disabled populations.
