A Real Superhero


Muskaan Ahirwar is a 9 year-old 3rd grade student from Bhopal, India (yes that Bhopal). Every day after school she sets up a library in front of her home for the neighborhood children who can’t afford to attend school. She reads stories and tutors the younger children in reading skills. Last December the regional education board recognized her “Bal Pustakalaya” as an official library and provided 25 additional books for her collection.
