THE NEED

THE NEED

Across the seven centres of Don Bosco Navjeevan Society, children sit on the floor for long hours with hunched back. This has a major negative effect on child's health where both back and eye get strained and also results in poor hand writing.  Even at home, most of them sit on the floor. Deskits will help them to study better and more comfortably in classrooms. 

ACTION

PLAN OF ACTION

We need a set of 200 deskits (210 of 9 inches and 340 of 12 inches) for different centres of ours. The centre-wise requirements are:

i) 150 in Faidan colony in Chandigarh

ii) 60 in Sector 47D of Chandigarh 

Deskit is a unique combo of a lightweight school bag and an ergonomic, fold-able, light weight, portable and detachable study table. The table can also be adjusted at two heights to maintain comfortable sitting posture. The detached table can be used separately from the bag. The school bag has two compartments for keeping books and lunch box, a water bottle pouch and an extra pouch for keeping stationary. 

EXPECTED IMPACT

EXPECTED IMPACT

There is a need for preventing health problems that may arise due to bad body posture in children studying with hunched back position by providing infrastructure. We hope that through the project Likhai, children will be more interested in learning. These desk cum bags would not only aid studies but will also be useful to them at home.
