Textcup / a disposal paper cup

Textcup
Textcup

Kids in the third world have aspiration for proper education since they believe it is the only way out of poverty. A photo of children tiptoeing outside the window of a school classroom to overhear the teaching inspired me to give these children an opportunity to teach themselves. A café consumes hundreds of disposable paper cups every day. Textcup uses these otherwise-wasted cups for these children to learn. The back side of the cup contains alphabet, numbers, geography or other basic education contents a child may need. The store collects paper cups and send them to the third world so that children can teach themselves.
