Understanding our product
Midesk is an innovative school bag that converts into a desk and chair with a solar light. Research has proven that carrying heavy school bags will have an adverse impact on students’ health as they enter into adulthood. The revolutionary design allows for a child to wheel their bag and chair.
Our desk provides them a chair to sit on and a desk to write on. It belongs to them and can be used at home and school. No matter where they are, they have a tool to assist their learning process. With the lightweight recyclable material, we address not only the wellness of the child but the environment too.
With the waterproof durable plastic it has a long life span. With added features such as reflective tape straps for visibility and a solar light, we not only address the need for a desk but that of light.
How does it solve the education issue?
Education is a vital need globally. According to an independent research survey, having a desk to work on in school will improve in multiple areas relating to literacy development and academic performance.
A desk will improve the learner’s handwriting making it easier to read, teachers can teach more effectively, and having a desk at your home environment will also improve homework delivery of pupils.
Many of these children who do not have desks at school often come from poverty stricken families in rural areas.
It is difficult for schools to maintain the necessities on extremely low budgets as the school fees are very low. The MiDesk will assist in improving the overall learning experience for the pupil, teacher and parent in poverty stricken rural areas.
