Proposed Project Title


Study Tables for under-privileged children of Uttar Pradesh

 

Thematic Area

Promotion of education, special education and vocational skills

Sub Thematic Area

Education Infrastructure (hostel, school buildings, benches, desks etc)

Project Synopsis

To provide low cost ergonomic study tables to under privileged school children in Uttar Pradesh. Due to COVID-19 pandemic students are expected to be studying from home at least for the next 2 years. These students don't have any study tables at home. They study on the floor or on the bed "Takhat". The book/notebook is also placed on the floor, this needs them to bend and study for long hours, such that the backs of children can get permanently damaged. The future generation is the backbone of the country and that backbone has to be protected.

Proposed Project Description

COVID-19 has disrupted the normal working of our education system. The new normal is study from home and work from home. Suddenly homes which used to have maximum 1-2 members out of the 4-6 members of a nuclear family at home in the day are experiencing all family members at home.


Working members of the family are having to work from home and children studying are having to study from home. Whereas in the urban areas internet bandwidth is the only challenge, in rural or sub urban areas there are many challenges to be faced, some of them are as under:

  • Not as many rooms as number of working adults and studying children requiring to conduct their online meetings/classes
  • Not enough space in each room to accomodate a desk and chair
  • Among other problems like not enough devices and internet availability and speed


In such a situation underprivileged students at least need a Sit & Study Table that is light weight, cost effective, sturdy & most of all ergonomic to study and yet does not damage their back bones forever. After all they are the future of our country. We at KIDOZ (A brand owned by Global Craft) have always focussed on Bringing Cheers to Kidz Lives Always. This is our turn to return to society what we have gained from the baby boomer urban population.


Kidoz has come up with a Sit & Study table made of extremely sturdy high quality ultra low formaldehyde emission Pine wood MDF. The tables have a 12mm thick top, they come with ISI certified aluminium (completely rust free) hinges. 15mm thick MDF legs. Machine screwed. The tables are made in a size of 24"X12" keeping in mind the fact that the students would have to keep their Text Book and also a Notebook next to it to write on, simultaneously. Each table is provided with a slot to keep pencils, pens, ruler, eraser & sharpener when not in use. The tables are provided with a removable mobile stand, designed to take the weight and size of any smart phone or tablet to facilitate video classes.


This is a revolutionary product which can forever transform the lives of millions of under-privileged School going children.
