Capital Land has concluded the donation of 9 925 lap desks to scholars attending schools in Katlehong, Carletonville, Nkomazi, Thulamahashe, Kanyamazane, Mkhuhlu and Heidelberg. A further 3 000 lap desks will be donated to scholars in Motherwell, Eastern Cape and Diepsloot, Gauteng by the end of 2019. These donations will bring the total number of lap desks donated across the Community Property Fund portfolio since 2015 to over 36 000.
Lap desks are light and durable desks which provide a solution for school children who don’t have desks. The desk sits on the child’s lap, providing them with a surface to write on, whether they are sitting on a chair or on the floor. As the desks are portable, the child is able to take the desk home to provide them with a surface to do their homework on.
