Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2015
This description of Jérémy Lachal's work was prepared when Jérémy Lachal was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2015.
Isolation and inactivity among marginalized communities – from refugee camps to underprivileged neighborhoods – can have dramatic consequences such as violence and physical and mental health problems in communities. In response, Jérémy is defining a new standard for libraries in the 21st Century, repositioning their role in communities as key vectors of economic and human development.
