Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2015
This description of Sierra James's work was prepared when Sierra James was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2015.
After 12 years of independence, Timorese people are still living in the ongoing cycles of violence that has become “naturally accepted” as part of their life. The impact of the violence at home, schools, streets, and by the existing institution, legal frameworks and protection systems are still nascent.
Sierra James is developing the approach of breaking the cycle of violence and transforming the lives of children, youth and woman in protection term of spreading the awareness of violence, creating the positive conflict resolution and the trauma healing process.
