Smriti commented on TV and sms ”classroom” setting

10 - 15 mobiles could be kept with the teacher and are distributed when ever the class starts and as the class gets over the phones are returned back to the teacher for the next session , in this way not many phones will need to be purchased

Smriti commented on Shared chalkboard posters

its like instead of providing book to every kid , we are reducing the amount of stationary which needs to be transported to the rural sector at the same time making the activity more interactive and encouraging collaborative learning

personally do not think mail pricing would be an issue but with reliability the goods with robust exteriors/approach do best in rural setting that needs to be kept in mind while developing the concept (like meena had mentioned maybe painted murals which can not be vandalized), i was also wondering as to what incentive could be given to the entrepreneur to provide this service ?

great idea guy ....building on what u mentioned in your summary "people giving to charity is that they do not know where their money goes" , maybe it could have a small system of a feedback in the form of photos sent to the donors (uploaded on the website) , to let them know how much there contribution has made a difference, that might help in retaining and encouraging the donors.
