The POWER Initiative

This runner-up in our 2016 Milton Wolf Prize competition, Masilan Sundara, took initiative and developed his own program. This is what he writes in the introduction to his project: My name is Masi Sundara, I am an 8th grader at Buist Academy for Advanced Studies. Over my summer vacation, I visited India to do a community service project. I had a particular goal in mind. It was to help schools in rural southern India promote reading and make it appealing to the elementary school students there. I hoped to encourage used English general reading books.
