Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2013
This description of Anne Charpy's work was prepared when Anne Charpy was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2013.
Anne Charpy has developed a unique approach to restore community in France’s poorest urban districts, by connecting disempowered inhabitants with each other and with mainstream society. In doing so, Anne restores their trust in each other as well as in public and private institutions. Through this model, millions of marginalized people in low-income areas ridden with high levels of illiteracy, unemployment, and crime are experiencing improved standards of living.
