Ashoka Fellow

Rumah Dongeng Indonesia
This description of Wachidus (We Es) Sururi's work was prepared when Wachidus (We Es) Sururi was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1998.
Sururi Wachidus (known as Kak WeEs) is reforming education and family communications in Indonesia through storytelling, a traditional communication and teaching method which has been eclipsed recently by the introduction of the mass media. Storytelling, especially in the participatory style Kak WeEs advocates, encourages a kind of dialogue that does not presently exist in either the home or in educational institutions.
