  • Need

    Need

    the children don't have the friends that they would like to have as they feel inferior to the other kids that could afford to do fun activities and outings whenever they want. they also can't join the talk when their peers talk about the major fun places they've been to. this leads them to be socially inactive and sometimes even depressed. this could cause long term harm for their future and to reach their potential

    Solution

    we will give the parents a chance to give their kids for free! outings and activities that their peers are having. the children will be able to fit in socially much better with their peers as they will also be having expensive fun. this will automatically cause long term happiness as they will be feeling better with themselves, joining in the talks between friends causing them to try harder at reaching their potential in life.
