Our Mission

We are a dedicated group of students from Pakistan with a mission to foster healthy learning habits and promote educational equity across our nation. Recognizing the significant barriers posed by the high cost of textbooks, we took it upon ourselves to address this challenge. Our goal is to provide affordable access to quality books for students who are in need but are often discouraged by prohibitive prices. Through our platform, we aim to create a supportive community where knowledge can be shared freely, resources are utilized efficiently, and every student has the opportunity to succeed academically without financial constraints.

Our Story

We are a group of eight students from different parts of Pakistan who united through the Amal Academy Fellowship to find initiatives for the betterment of our country. During our fellowship, we identified many issues, but the most pressing was the education problem in Pakistan. We believe many talented students lack access to the right opportunities, face unaffordable book prices, and are discouraged from studying harder due to these challenges.


Inspired by this belief, we brainstormed solutions and conducted a survey, discovering that many students’ books go unused after their study period. These books often get thrown out or collect dust on shelves. This led us to create our website, a platform to incentivize students to sell their used books to those in need, making educational resources more accessible and affordable.


We also added a blog feature, rewarding students who share their knowledge by writing about their school lives, university experiences, research work, and daily activities. This idea united us, transforming our group into a cohesive TEAM dedicated to improving education and empowering students across Pakistan.
