    Cette description du travail de Daphne Nederhorst a été rédigée lors de sa sélection comme Fellow Ashoka en 2009.
    Introduction
    Daphne Nederhorst is combating extreme poverty in the world’s poorest countries by supporting local champions (Sawa Heroes) who have their own solutions to extreme poverty. She does this by giving them the tools to spread and scale their successful initiatives to surrounding communities that also endure extreme poverty. She is doing so by training unemployed youth journalist with video and social media skills, promoting and linking the work of Heroes to a global community. The local media partners are also getting first hand knowledge about locally designed poverty reduction strategies in that area. Daphne is influencing the effectiveness of foreign aid strategies as well as educating impoverished communities by promoting the best practices of their local role models. Daphne’s key goal is to work with the Sawa Heroes in developing sustainable financial models that will provide a permanent and locally generated stream of funds to support the scaling-up of their projects that can reach the 1 billion people that live in extreme poverty.
