Thank you for your comment, the ideas are great! We definitely think bigger and more sturdy boxes would be of greater use for our design. The dinosaur idea is indeed inspiring! Although our idea is currently going to a slightly different direction (and we will update soon), we will keep thinking about possible ways to incorporate these wonderful ideas! :)
Thank you very much! Initially we intended this idea to be implemented outside developed countries since especially sturdy educational materials are more likely to be in demand there. However, we intend to design our idea in a way that could be implemented in any refugee camp or educational context. We are going to update our idea soon to explain how this will work :)
Thank you so much for your comment! It is wonderful to know that our idea might be of great potential, we are excited :) Actually, would you mind talking with us sometime about what things are like in Kakuma and maybe we can explore some ways to make our idea fit your needs?
