The Desmond Tutu Tutudesk Campaign

Aug 6, 2018

In partnership with the United Nations Special Envoy for Education, the Tutudesk Campaign provides the answer to the classroom desk shortage crisis experienced in schools in developing countries. Over 95 million children in schools across sub-Saharan Africa have no access to a classroom desk making functional literacy – the ability to read and write – impossible to acheive. Tutudesk offers children their very own workstation creating immediate, high impact and positive change in an instant, under any learning conditions. Tutudesk is a proven solution to a literacy development and general infrastructure crisis. 

Donations should be made to the Diocese of Atlanta with the notation TuTu Desk Campaign and mailed to the Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing. One desk per parish is available to be picked up from the Center for Racial Healing so contributors can see what they are purchasing.
