Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, November 23, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Khairi Marhaben, a 23-year-old student and budding entrepreneur seeks to raise the $15,000 required to begin production of the world’s first prayer watch for kids. Marhaben hopes to raise the necessary funds through the use of the popular crowdfunding website Indiegogo.com. The campaign to fund the aptly named "BaBa Watch" begins on Dec. 1 and ends on Jan. 1, 2016.
Marhaben was inspired by his Emirati nephew Hamad al Neyadi, who helped with the final design, and his sister’s three children to develop a prayer watch for kids. He realized that kids today are bombarded with distractions on the internet and on mobile devices making it hard for them to observe the proper times for prayer no matter how many times their parents remind them. Lifelong habits, good or bad, begin in childhood and the BaBa Watch is designed to not only help children develop a sense of responsibility but also reduce the time and stress placed upon parents.
Marhaben knew that kids did not want to wear any of the heavy and complicated prayer watches produced for adults, and would prefer a more personal device with features such as a built in 4GB USB for use at school and an indicator that points out the proper direction for prayer.
Marhaben, said, “I knew well before I began my degree in Commercial Economics at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences that I wanted to develop my own product. It could not be the next blender or coffee machine, it had to be something personal that truly benefited those who used it. When I saw my nephew struggling to remember the correct times to pray I purchased him a prayer watch, but he hated how heavy, complicated, and ill-fitting it was. That was my ah-ha moment, I knew what I had to do and immediately began designing what is the first kid-approved prayer watch.”
Support Marhaben and his dream of bringing the first children’s prayer watch to market by visiting ThunderClap today and pre-purchasing a BaBa Watch on 1 December on Indiegogo.
