How we started
My first day in the University of Ibadan , Getting into the dorm allocated to me I saw a lot of abandoned books. These books were still in good shape and in fact some of them were still new. After my first semester I discovered that there is no platform that gives me the access to share course materials (mostly pdf's) that will be useful to the next set of students. This got me thinking, and I asked myself these questions:
- Is there anyone trying to solve this?
- Can I solve this?
- How can I solve this?
These three questions are what brings bukooh! to life.
Our main aim is to minimize and eventually stop the waste of books in the University of Ibadan . We give book owner the platform to upload "No Longer Useful books to me" either softcopy or hardcopy. We make pdf's downloadable to anyone irrespective of their race or culture and we connect those that upload hard copy books(in form of an image with some descriptions) to those that needs it through SMS(text messages).
And Guess what? It's 100% free
