Desk for a Child Studying
Most of the children in the community we work in drop out of school after 5th grade due to parent's pressure to start work or beg, to watch younger siblings, or out of frustrated because they have fallen behind in their studies and are embarrassed.
We work with the local government schools to get children caught up and re-enrolled in school. Currently, our educational program has 50 students. We want to have desks made for each child so they take their studies more seriously and have pride in their studies (vs sitting on a mat on a floor).
