Help Desk

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / White Pencil / Design / 2014

Most schools in rural India lack basic facilities like desks. Students have to sit on the floor with their backs hunched for hours. Aarambh, an NGO that works with children, wanted an easy and economical solution. We zeroed on discarded cartons. We approached retail outlets who donated them in huge quantities. And then created Help Desk – a folding desk that could also be used as a bag. We distributed Help Desks in schools. This helped children study with ease and carry books on their long walks to school. Help Desk played an important role in improving the quality of education in rural India.
