IThis project given me the chance to think of students who lack support in education, in which some certain additives on their daily life can make at least some small difference.

I guess the change needs time to be seen especially that there would be update for the magazine every week or every month.
How many people were impacted by your project?

The people affected are local underprivileged students, as well refugees living in informal settlements yet the plan was changed amid covid 19 pandemic.

What challenges did your team overcome?
The first challenge schools were locked down, second lock down of areas where you can’t reach informal settlements areas. Third online sponsoring failure due to banking problems in the country; fourth exceeded the budget. Fifth, little bit confused on the flow of ideas and content in magazine
