Report on the Results:  The event was an unexpected success and we have achieved the main goals. In a nation were it's not easily applicable for enthusiasts to obtain a telescope, our efforts have showed the energetic youths that they do not require a scope to dip into the world of astronomy and enjoy the observation. We have taught the basics of observational astronomy and the use of free starmaps. Our efforts have successfully helped them understand that learning astronomy and sharing it with friends and family members are a noble goal and is therefore within their reach with a super low budget only.
