Tutudesk UK supports the South African organisation the Desmond Tutu 2015 Tutudesk Campaign Centre. The aim of the organisation is to provide portable school desks, Tutudesks, to children in Sub Saharan Africa where over 95 million school children don't have the benefit of a classroom desk. This affects handwriting, literacy and overall academic performance.
The Tutudesk product is an innovative solution that ensures a child has a writing surface whether they are sitting on a chair or the floor. We have a financial sustainable business model through corporate sponsorship and I am creating a new funding stream through UK retail.
To date over 1 million desks have been distributed. The Campaign's objective is to distribute a further 20 million desks to 20 million children by 2015.
