This description of Samuel Ngnitedem's work was prepared when Samuel Ngnitedem was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1996.
A Christian minister, Samuel Ngnitedem left his parish to rededicate his life to the street children of Cameroon's cities. Samuel is driven to improve the circumstances of street children fundamentally and to that end has devised effective new ways to reintegrate them into society. Among other things, he is spearheading a movement to retrain social workers in light of the special human service needs of street children.
