Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2006
This description of Samsidar's work was prepared when Samsidar was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2006.
Samsidar is rebuilding community ties in Aceh, where the social fabric has been devastated by thirty years of armed conflict, military rule, and natural disaster. Samsidar links women victims with each other to promote healing, and then helps them to reconnect with their families and other women in the community as they rebuild their lives.
