Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2008
This description of Rose Volz-Schmidt's work was prepared when Rose Volz-Schmidt was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2008.
When society leaves new mothers alone and overburdened, Rose Volz-Schmidt helps them cope with the chaotic challenges of motherhood in the first months. She has created a broad network of volunteers and professionals to bridge the gap between families and the welfare system, and in doing so is strengthening young families and changing society's attitude towards motherhood.
