Challenge

Young Pakistan children, particularly from struggling areas, have no access to books and most are illiterate. We want to start their process of loving reading as well as give them a technology-free safe space for their imagination to grow.

Solution

Give free children's books set in Pakistan and as we scale, in the different languages of Pakistan (Urdu, Punjabi, Pashtoo, Sindhi, etc.)

Long-Term Impact

Pakistani children reading. Fostering a love of reading and learning, as well for the first time (to our knowledge) having Pakistani folklore and children's stories set in Pakistan.
