Stephen Austin and GradeMaker have put together a cycling team to support Children's Educational Projects in Developing Countries!
Globally recognised, and in partnership with the United Nations Special Envoy for Education, the Tutudesk provides the answer to the classroom desk shortage crisis experienced in schools in developing countries. Functional literacy – the ability to read and write – is almost impossible to achieve without a dedicated writing surface – a school desk. Over 95 million children in schools across sub-Saharan Africa have no access to a classroom desk and the prospect of compromised literacy development. Tutudesk offers children their very own workstation creating immediate, high impact and positive change in an instant, under any learning conditions. Made from a robust child-friendly blend of polymers, Tutudesk is designed to last the duration of a learner’s school career. At $0.018 per day / over three years, Tutudesk is a unique and portable solution to our most disadvantaged children, offering a sense of worth, dignity and ownership over and above the literacy and academic improvements. The Tutudesk Campaign aims to deliver at least 20million Tutudesks to leaners by 2025. With over 1,5million desks already in the hands of children and more than 3,000 school handovers conducted, Tutudesk is a proven solution to a literacy development and general infrastructure crisis.
Stephen Austin together with GradeMaker have put together a cycling team to raise funds for this worthy cause. Children are our future and we believe that supporting educational projects, no matter how small or big, can make significant and positive difference. Help us with funds or if you cannot provide any donations we would love you to encourage our team with your presence on the side of the road on the 1st July 2018.
