Cette description du travail de Raquel da Silva Barros a été rédigée lors de sa sélection comme Fellow Ashoka en 2000.
Introduction
Raquel Barros' new approach is rehabilitating young, low-income, chemically dependent mothers, an underserved population in Brazil. By allowing mothers to keep their children with them during treatment, Raquel is changing the model of drug rehabilitation into a more effective treatment which prepares women to be responsible parents, helps them find employment, and creates mechanisms for involving community members in the rehabilitation process, thus facilitating the women's reentry into society.
