Who does your solution serve, and in what ways will the solution impact their lives?
Malaysia is a rainy country, it rains especially heavier during September – November. I found that most of the people don’t bring their own umbrella, even myself, due to a lot of reasons ranging from forgetful to simply it’s just a nuisance to bring (too heavy). Thus, when people have to walk through an open-air area and it rains, it will be a trouble for them; a lot of people are forced to stuck in school and wait for the rain to stop. What most heinous about it is, it almost always rains in the afternoon from 2 pm to around 6 pm, and when the rain stops, it’s already peak hour and it will be super jammed. Not bringing an umbrella wastes people’s time to stuck indoor to wait for the rain to stop.
