British High Commission partners with Archbishop Desmond Tutu to distribute Tutudesks at Zakheni Secondary School

28 April 2016

British High Commissioner to South Africa, Dame Judith Macgregor, accompanied by Mrs Thandeka Tutu-Gxashe, Tutudesk Chief Executive Officer today donated over 800 Tutudesks to schoolchildren at Zakheni Secondary School, Leratong, Kwamahlanga, Mpumalanga.

The British High Commission supported the TutuDesk campaign through funding these desks which profiled the Bloodhound programme in South Africa. The Tutudesk Campaign provides infrastructure support, in the form of Tutudesks, to schools across South Africa who are affected by classroom desk shortages.

TutuDesk Campaign is a globally recognised social development programme and has recently partnered with the Global Education First initiative in collaboration with the United Nations Special Envoy for Education.

Over 95 million children in schools across sub-Saharan Africa have no access to a classroom desk and face the prospect of compromised literacy development and academic performance as direct result of this issue.

Bloodhound SSC is a unique, high-technology project to design and build a car that will break the 1,000mph (1 610 km/h) barrier and set a new world land speed record. Designed and constructed in the UK with support from South African companies.
