Over 95 million school children in Sub Saharan Africa do not have the benefit of a classroom desk. This affects the development of the child's literacy and academic performance, as well as their ability to concentrate in class.

Solution:

Provide portable school desks (known as Tutudesks) to children. To date, over 1 million desks have been distributed. The objective of the campaign is to distribute a further 20 million desks to 20 million children by 2020.

“As a beneficiary of the Archbishop Tutu Fellowship Programme, I have found a renewed sense of purpose in my own goals and objectives. The opportunity to constantly engage and collaborate with a wide number of like-minded, yet diverse, individuals from across our continent has expanded my consciousness, honed my personal outlook on life and considerably grown my skillset in key areas.”- Shane Immelman COO
