A Dream come true for our rural student
(DESK + SCHOOL BAG)
Education is a multi-dimensional exercise. It can never be static or drab lest the students lose interest quickly. Students in rural areas are particularly put to a lot of hardship as they trudge along the rough landscape braving harsh weather like monsoon and scorching summer. Their daily chores should be made simple as well as attractive to incentivise them to attend school and that is where the Zab Bag enters the picture in innovative style.
Basically the Zab Bag addresses the unfulfilled need for a desk structure in distant rural schools where students barely get to sit properly on the rough floor, not to mention a comfortable, stable and user friendly desk that can be easily carried from place to place. Zab Bag meets this need admirably. The following are the features of this bag that make it attractive in more ways than one.
Quality and access to education is the major concern in rural schools as there are lack of proper text books and learning material in the schools.
Students in rural areas, lack access to basic educational infrastructure, as basic as a desk & bag. Most of the students in rural schools of India sit down on floor for long studying hours. 9 in 10 people face posture related problems and back injuries at some point of time in their life. Sitting on floor and studying for 6-8 hours affects posture, resulting in back pain, poor eye sight, inefficiency to concentrate and study.
ZAB is an intelligently designed school bag, helps children carry their books, belonging, irrespective of the weather conditions. The same bag with no mechanics transforms into a school desk. The desk offers an appropriate angle for students to write and read, thus ensuring to maintain an ergonomic posture while studying.
Rugged and Water Proof Design
The material used for manufacturing this bag is Polypropylene which enhances the strength and life of the bag. The bag retains its colour and shape with abuse use over a long period. The sling strap is made of strong material to withstand abuse usage by children.
Use as Desk
The bag has an ergonomically designed angle for the child to write without any strain to the wrist, back or neck. This has been tested out in villages under conditions of actual usage by the children.
Innovative Integrated construction
This low cost concept was developed to ensure that this school bag + desk can be adapted immediately in rural villages. The main bag is made of a single unit without joints so that it stays sturdy and maintains its shape despite rough handling. The latch and hinge is also integrated into the single piece construction.
The bag has an integrated feature which, when used as a desk prevents the book or paper from sliding down without clamping..
The construction of the school bag + desk has provisions to enhance it with features to add a solar lamp or integrate a pencil/pen holder. It can also be customized to be made in any colours.
Branding benefits & Good will
The Zab Bag will feature donor’s logo prominently on the frontal facade which will enhance donors branding and create good will among beneficiaries
