Melrose Arch, one of the country’s most luxurious and high-end shopping and business centres, has donated one hundred running metres of sheets of vinyl in the form of billboards to DeskBags, a NPC dedicated to creating mobile desk solutions for underprivileged children around South Africa.
DeskBags is an innovative concept that provides school satchels that double as desks when folded open as the bag flap is reinforced with ABS plastic, providing a hard and stable surface for children to write on to do their lessons and homework.
Many schools around the country are not furnished with the most basic of amenities, such as school desks or chairs. According to Angie Motshekga, Minister of Basic Education 3.1 million children do not have school desks and are forced to learn while seated or kneeling on dusty floors, and using the ground as a writing surface.
