Nila Tanzil is an Indonesian advocate who is the founder of Rainbow Reading Gardens, an organisation that promotes literacy in underdeveloped and remote areas of eastern Indonesia. In less than three years, she has distributed more than 20,000 books and built 25 children's libraries across 10 islands. With an active and sprightly attitude which reflects her love for travelling and working full-time at Nike, Tanzil has never feared arduous travelling through the island jungles to get her libraries set up.
