This description of Teresa Ogrodzinska's work was prepared when Teresa Ogrodzinska was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2013.
Teresa Ogrodzinska has transformed the Polish education system by introducing alternative forms of preschool education. Teresa has done this by creating flexible and inexpensive community-based programs for children’s growth, that respond to the economic situations of rural and provincial areas in Poland. Teresa is also unlocking the potential of rural women by empowering them to play an active role in the creation of educational spaces within communities.
