Desks are so helpful to learning – from comfort to the ability to take notes, they help students focus and learn what is being taught. Typical desks used in African schools are sturdy wooden desks that seat 2-4 students each. 32 desks fit in each classroom. Help us fill our classrooms with desks so these children no longer have to sit on the floor, struggling to take notes on their laps or on the backs of the child in front of them.
