Meet Muskaan Ahirwar, an amazing 9-year old girl who runs a library called “Bal Pustakalaya” in a small slum in Bhopal for children who can’t read. The inspiring third-standard student has an incredible collection of her own already, but thanks to non-profit group Room To Read, her library just got significantly better.
According to Buzzfeed, the non-profit donated upwards of “50 of their original local language children’s books to Muskaan’s library,” providing great content for children of Bhopal.
“These are very colourful books. I liked all of them. The drawings in the books are very good and the words are written big,” Muskaan said. “In today’s world, education is important and so books are important. Education has a great role to play in our lives. When small children read, enjoy and laugh, I feel very happy. 20-25 children come to my library every day,” she added.
This girl is only 9-years old?!
