The Kommunity Desk Company
© has one simple objective: to dramatically reduce classroom desk shortages affecting over 90 million African school children by the year 2015.
Kommunity Desk© dramatically improves the learning conditions of children who do not have access to a desk in their classrooms, and gives these children the opportunity to create a better life for themselves through improved academic performance.
As an organisation, The Kommunity Desk Company© is committed to providing our supporters and partners with the ability to play a significant, measurable and strategic role in the development of the communities in which they are present and conduct their business or activities.
The Kommunity Desk© is a very simple, patented product. Imprinted with our Sponsor’s brand or logo, and made from highly durable and child-safe materials, any child can place the Kommunity Desk© against their body as an effective writing surface to work on, whether they are sitting under a tree in a rural school, in a classroom without desks, or at home.
Our Sponsors are able to use the Kommunity Desk© as either a media platform (for brand or product communication and education) or alternatively as a social investment instrument to deploy or support their chosen social initiatives or social/educative messaging.
The Kommunity Desk© is given directly to the child, to use at both school and at home. This strategy ensures that the branded Kommunity Desks© become walking billboards, interacting with youth, community and family environments as it is carried and used between school and home on a daily basis.
Kommunity Desk’s© size, shape, longevity, and portability means that Sponsor’s elected logos, brands or social investment initiatives receive sustained exposure to multiple audiences over a long period (it will be seen by a child’s friends, parents, neighbours, fellow community members, etc. for years to come).
Sponsoring branded Kommunity Desks© is a simple process. We understand the need for our Sponsor’s investment to be measurable and cost effective (internal) and high impact and relevant (external, recipient value) and we provide our supporters with everything from logistics planning to design services as an inclusive part of our pricing schedule.
Ultimately providing branded Kommunity Desks© is a very powerful and mutually beneficial way for Sponsors to further enhance awareness & appreciation of their Company and it’s products and services amongst emerging market communities within our country, as well as amongst peers.
Kommunity Desk© is also a highly cost-effective method of complimenting any communication strategy activity aimed at this market segment, offering Sponsors significantly better ROI than any existing media platform currently available in the market, as well as the unique, additional and immeasurable benefit of goodwill towards Sponsors.
Archbishop Desmond Tutu is the Patron of The Kommunity Desk Company©, and our work is endorsed and supported by the relevant education authorities in the numerous countries in which we conduct our work.
