School desks


Imagine a classroom without desks.

Across rural Africa, students have to sit on mud floors in rundown rooms. “Jigger fleas” are common too, burrowing into children’s legs as they learn.

Your gift could help provide well-built desks that include seats, creating a clear, safe workspace for children to learn, allowing them to concentrate on their education.

How it works

Each alternative gift includes a beautiful postcard recognising the contribution made in the recipient's name. It describes how the gift will support education in the communities we work with.

  • Choose an alternative gift
  • If you'd like your gift sent directly to a friend: add a personal message in the box below (to be handwritten on your behalf), then tell us their address on the next page
  • Or, we can deliver a blank card straight to you, so you can add your own greeting

All of our gifts represent aspects of real long-term projects in rural Africa. As the need for funding and support can change within each community we partner with, your gift will be used wherever it is needed most.
