       management, children entertainment,

       educational and entertainment products. 

Although there are unique potential in this organization, there is a number of serious challenges as well. For example:

     - We do need close academic collaboration with international universities and educational institutions
       in order to access to up-to-date knowledge in addition to have their feedback
     - We need more financial support for the next steps of the project
