Revolutionary Optimists by Nicole Newnham and Maren Grainger Monsen. Amlan Ganguly, teaches the children of Kolkata’s slums to become leaders in improving their own community’s health and sanitation.

Using street theater, dance, and data as their weapons, the children have cut malaria and diarrhea rates in half, increased polio vaccination rates, and turned garbage dumps into playing fields.
