Ashoka Fellow
This description of Zsuzsa Csato's work was prepared when Zsuzsa Csato was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2003.
Zsuzsa Csato is promoting independent living as a viable option for people with mental handicaps. She is empowering families to care for dependents at home and then move them into independent living situations. By helping both the families and the persons with handicaps prepare and deal with the transition, she is preventing people with handicaps from being forced into institutional environments.
