Fellow Since 2011
Azul Solidarity
This description of Veronica Torassa's work was prepared when Veronica Torassa was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2011.
Verónica Torassa has developed an integrated approach to rural development that focuses on improved education, health, women’s empowerment, and youth involvement, all done in close collaboration with the public and private sector. This integrated approach has strengthened rural identity, promotes a more sustainable rural development and, as a consequence, avoids rural exodus to major cities.
