What is Midesk

Midesk is a revolutionary wheelie schoolbag that converts into a desk and a chair with a solar light and USB charging portal. This innovative design allows for a child to wheel their bag, chair and desk to school and back home while at the same time addressing 6 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals in accordance with the 2030 Agenda.

Our portable desk provides a child with a chair to sit on and a desk to write on that can be used at home and school. No matter where they are, they have a tool to assist their learning process. With MiDesk being made of lightweight recyclable material, we address not only the wellness of the child but the environment too.

With added features such as the solar light and USB charging portal, reflective stickers for visibility at night and ruggedized wheels for rural terrains, the MiDesk provides a complete solution to a child at school.

How does it solve the education issue?​​

Research has proven that a childs academic performance increases by 48% if they have a designated homework station. According to an independent research survey, having a desk to work on at school will improve in multiple areas relating to literacy and academic performance.

Having a desk will improve the learner’s handwriting making it easier to read and concentrate, teachers can teach more effectively, and having a desk at your home environment will also improve homework delivery of pupils.

As many of these children who do not have desks at school often come from poverty stricken families in rural areas, the MiDesk will assist in improving the overall learning experience for the pupil, teacher and parent in these areas.

The MiDesk is in alignment with the following 6 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals in accordance with 2030 Agenda
