Cell C empowers education with innovative midesks: a back-to-school initiative

Monday, 29 January 2024

Cell C, in partnership with Sedibeng District Municipality and Midvaal Local Municipality in Gauteng province, has donated 100 MiDesks and 100 school bags to Rasethjaba Primary School in Meyerton, Gauteng as part of its Back-to-School campaign.

The MiDesk is a groundbreaking wheelie schoolbag that serves as a portable desk and transforms into a chair, equipped with a solar light and USB charging portal. This innovative solution provides children with a versatile tool for learning, seamlessly transitioning between home and school environments.

The MiDesk not only ensures that students have a comfortable chair and desk wherever they go but also integrates modern technology with its solar light and USB charging capabilities. This will have a positive impact on the lives of learners at Rasethjaba Primary School and go a long way in ensuring that our children have access to quality education and are able to reach their full potential.

Cell C's dedication to fostering education shines through in this initiative. Cell C's Managing Executive: Government Relations, Joshua Moela says, "We passionately believe that education is the key to a brighter future. Through this initiative, the learning experience for every child, regardless of their circumstances will be enhanced. MiDesks are a practical means to empower students, ensuring they have the tools necessary to excel in their academic journey. This collaborative effort reflects a shared vision of making education accessible and impactful."

The school expressed its gratitude to Cell C, Sedibeng District Municipality, and Midvaal Local Municipality for their commitment to education and for making this initiative possible.
