“The Revolutionary Optimists” - Hilton LightStay Sustainability Award

Children are saving lives in the slums of Calcutta. Amlan Ganguly doesn't rescue children; he empowers them to become change agents, battling poverty and transforming their neighborhoods with dramatic results. The Revolutionary Optimists follows Amlan and three of the children he works with -- Salim, Kajal and Priyanka - on an intimate journey through adolescence, as they bravely fight the forces that oppress them -- from polio to child labor and child marriage.
