This description of Merche Garcia Villatoro's work was prepared when Merche Garcia Villatoro was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2010.
Merche Garcia Villatoro is bringing together key educational institutions to provide a holistic experience for children and youth beyond teaching formal skills, to include values such as empathy, democratic participation, and service. In doing this, Merche assists educational institutions, parents, and communities to understand that education goes far beyond the eight hours a day a child spends at school and involves them as key participants.
