“When I was a child I always wanted to read more, because I loved and fantasized about adventures. But, books were sometimes hard to come by and kids might not be allowed to borrow books from the library for fear of destroying them. When I read my first harry potter book, it blew my mind and it changed who I was. I want to create an opportunity for kids of today to go through such an experience”

This encapsulates the purpose for our existence. We want kids to read, read and read; and what is better than providing a platform through smart phones and tablets.
So we have created an e-book store app that kids can access for free. One might ask there are already available platforms for such an enterprise. One, however, should also understand that creating a reading culture is the most important goal for our organizations and all our efforts are targeted towards that goal.
As such, we are creating a library of e books (translated and original) and a series of used hard copy book with a very affordable price.
We also aim to create a platform for children story writers. Publishing is a hard endeavor for stry writers and we aim to create an audience their work deserves.
