Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2008
This description of Meinrad Armbruster's work was prepared when Meinrad Armbruster was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2008.
Meinrad Armbruster is addressing one of the biggest inequalities in Germany: Children from working class backgrounds have significantly fewer chances of success in life and suffer crucial disadvantages at home before the age of six. Meinrad helps these children by making their parents a part of the solution rather than the problem. He empowers poor parents to become responsible mothers and fathers and to create the nurturing family and community environments their children need to succeed in school and in life.
