The idea for this app sprung up when we (Nishant and Trishul) were volunteering at a school where half the kids did not have the required books or stationary. We are frequent
donators to charities and schools but when making these donations, we realized that we did not know exactly which schools needed what resources. Thus, BookConnect was born.
