Ensuring every African tomorrow is Literate, by furnishing rural-school classrooms today, using SeatPacks

$15

A school bag with a bamboo classroom-chair and writing-board (includes a menstrual pouch inside for adolescent girls) 3-times cheaper than tree-timber desks. Ideal for children in rural schools without furniture to sit comfortably and write properly during classes.

Over 95 Million African school children attend classes in rooms without furniture.

 

This makes sitting and writing very difficult, directly affecting child literacy and health over the long term; poor posture for long hours impacts kids’ ability to write properly and causes back pain.

 

Relying on only tree-timber to make classroom furniture accelerates the Climate Change catastrophe at a mass scale annually.

 

Adolescent girls often miss school to properly cater to period hygiene, missing up to 20% of the school year.

 

The SeatPack is changing all the above.

1

Mobile and Versatile

The SeatPack features a detachable seat and writing surface.

2

Portable Writing Surface

The SeatPack features a blackboard writing surface, allowing children without notebooks to take notes during class.

3

Light weight and Waterproof

Weighing just 600 grams, the SeatPack is light to carry, even for children who have a long walk to school.

4

Sustainably Produced

The SeatPack is made with non-chemically treated bamboo and canvas, replacing tree timber as the key material for classroom furniture.

5

Facilitates Menstrual Hygiene

Each SeatPack has a sanitary wet pocket for female students to tend to their menstrual hygiene without needing to miss school to do so discreetly.
