Tutudesk UK supports the South African organisation the Desmond Tutu Tutudesk Campaign Centre. The aim of the organisation is to provide portable school desks (known as Tutudesks) to children in Sub Saharan Africa where over 95 million school children don't have the benefit of a classroom desk (worldwide, it's estimated at over 400m). This affects the development of literacy and overall academic performance, as well as the ability to concentrate in class. To date over 1 million desks have been distributed. The Campaign's objective is to distribute a further 20 million desks to 20 million children by the end of 2020.
