Rent a Desk Day

Many children in Africa cannot go to school let alone have the luxury of a desk to work at. Open Schools Worldwide provides basic education to these Street Children, Garbage Scavengers, Orphans, and Working Children. Here is an awesome way to say thank you for all the luxuries you take for granted and help children in Africa learn at the same time!


Ask your teacher if you can hold a “Rent a Desk Day” to raise funds for Open Schools Worldwide. Each student brings in $5 (or whatever you decide is appropriate) to rent their desk for the day. Open Schools Worldwide will use the money you raise to buy chalk boards, knee desks, and other items for children who learn through our “School in a Bag” program.
