Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2009
This description of Samar Dudin's work was prepared when Samar Dudin was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2009.
Samar empowers Arab youth to become active citizens in their communities, as she transforms young people’s sense of apathy, loss of identity, alienation, exclusion & prejudice into civic engagement. Whereas existing initiatives in the region often perceive youth as a homogeneous group without addressing the different layers of exclusion and prejudice they face, Samar designs custom-made solutions and civic engagement channels suited to each group's needs. Samar works with youth from different ethnic, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds to mobilize a civically engaged youth movement.
