The Problem: Many Pakistanis are illiterate and lack access to education

Suggested Challenge: How can we harness the power of mobile and of billboards and advertising to promote literacy?

    a website where volunteers and those interested in donating can join in and work for this cause. or something like "Teach for Pakistan" http://iteachforpakistan.org/wp/

    No! The idea is more like educating the whole community on daily basis.
    Not many people can use internet (even many literate especially elders), so to make it simple Education/information will be provided through mobile and billboards.

    its a good idea, the SMS thing can be very useful. But the idea would be more applicable in print media considering the billboard thing. This Hackathon is about web, mobile and SMS applications.

    Yar it's a pretty big idea and lots to be done to get there but a variant of that could be provided such as there are many groups and forums online where people put their questions and projects and get full solutions back now I get really frustrated with that so we could make something like this where the idea is to push your limits and not going to evening tuitions and or forums like this to get it all done by others instead this is the idea:

    You put your subject narrow down to class narrow down to topic and get all the examples there from plenty of books, helping videos such as khan academy links and then you can put your questions and solutions where you don't get back full answers instead we limit the responses to reconsider-step-5. thats it :)
