The psychologist, Karen Horney maintained that “everyone is special and has a unique set of potentials which can flourish under wise guidance and proper support ”

Using this concept, the project uses a motivational approach to inspiring the students, this way, we provide the right atmosphere Conducive to the students to blossom their best and to develop to their reading and writing skills. This we strengthen by training the project implementation personnel on effective motivational skills to use in inspiring all kinds of personality and character. This way, they will drive the project aim further into the minds of their students.

The motivational method will provide the impetus for students to seek their personal growth through study and research. This makes them understand the reason for their schooling as a means to an end, the end of which is to become Educated and contribute meaningfully to societal advancement.
