Challenge

It is obvious that the reading habit among the school students is drastically dropped due to the popularity of social media and electronic games which consumes significant amount of their free time. Another well-known problem is due to the revolution era of electronic magazines and e-newspapers, local publications of books and printed magazines are almost stopped. On the other hand, the rural students have very limited facilities to internet access, to develop their knowledge and aptitute.

Solution

It is essential to implement a practical solution which has to attract the students towards reading and encourage them to involve with education and aptitude development in a simple and easy way. This simplified, colourful and interesting magazine and the rewards for the general knowledge questions from the magazine will attract the students into the world of Rearing other than their text books.

Long-Term Impact

The goal of this project is to attract the students towards the world of reading and motivate them to involve and utilize their free time in a constructive way. By the design of this project itself, it is assured that the students will attracted towards the joy of reading and continue the habit.
