Even today, many children in India lack basic amenities for proper schooling. Children still sit on the floor to study in many rural parts of the country as the schools cannot provide chairs and tables. Bearing this problem in mind, Prosoc created Deskit, a backpack that converts into writing table for such kids in India.
Prosoc is an innovative product company in India that thrives to bring a change in the social scenario, it designs and develops products for social impact.
Designed by Eshan Sadasivan for Prosoc, this innovative backpack is made of waterproof cloth and a detachable study desk is attached to it. The Deskit is affordable, foldable, and compact.
It is comfortable to wear, lightweight, and height of the study table is adjustable, making it suitable for kids of any age. It comes in a variety of colors with the durability of 1 to 2 years depending on how it’s used.
Prosoc thought about the difficulties that the children have while studying without a chair and table. Sitting with hunched back not only leads to backaches but it also affects eyesight. With Deskit, students can set their study tables anywhere and write properly with their books and other supplies right inside in their backpacks.
More than 20,000 students are using Deskit backpacks in 10 Indian states. These backpacks are encouraging kids to regularly attend school and also benefitting their health. Prosoc is motivating children to study wholeheartedly with this simple and yet very effective innovation. The backpack sells for ₹599 (approximately $8) on Amazon.
