Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2005
This description of Murali Mohan's work was prepared when Murali Mohan was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2005.
Beginning with the Lambada tribe in the South Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, Murali Mohan is developing new ways to educate the children of rural migrant workers and facilitate a culture of democratic participation in long-isolated tribal communities. Through innovative mechanisms geared to keep children in schools while their parents are away, as well as leadership programs for older children, Murali Mohan is giving shape to an entirely new community structure that has already begun to impact the region.
