Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2015
This description of Baihajar Tualeka's work was prepared when Baihajar Tualeka was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2015.
Lembaga Pemberdayaan Perempuan dan Anak is inspired by the intense religious segregation found in Ambon, which results in built up tension between Christians and Muslims. This is accomplished by infusing pluralism into communities using the latest educational modules on tolerance, which are taught in Baihajar's co-created playgrounds. Baihajar trains women as emissaries who will disseminate her lessons to young children, creating a community-based playground allowing children to lay down the foundations for tolerance between the Christians and Muslims of Ambon.
