Though I and my school friends used to teach the children during our free time, we needed books and other stationary. It was during this time that the idea of earning money came to my mind,” said Ranvijay Singh.
All about the game:

- The mobile-based application available in both free and payable versions was launched in July this year
- With the money he earned, Singh successfully bought stationary and books for the young slum dwellers nearby his neighbourhood in Gurgaon Sector 53
