School Desk

School Desk

More than 25 years ago, I had supported the efforts of Save The Children in Haj Yousuf camp for IDP (Internal Displaced People) at the outskirts of Khartoum, Sudan..

I remember my design for a simple class desk, which was assembled by a veteran welder at AlHella AlJadidah, my ancestors neighborhood at khartoum..

At that time we produced around 50 for the mobile classrooms I had designed too.. Then I fled Sudan with no return..

Once a friend told me how my design is used all over Africa by NGOs.. Today, I found it by mere coincidence.. Certainly, no intellectual property to claim, even so, such contribution is the true claim..

I’m extremely thankful for such unprecedented opportunity..
