Poverty continues to be an issue that requires a vast amount of cooperation and effort to minimize. HaYoung Lee, a product design student, took a unique approach to the problem by creating a special Letter Desk inspired by children he saw while visiting India.

Lee, a student at Hong Ik University in South Korea, noticed children attempting to do school work while sitting or crouching on roads. He created a light and portable desk intended for kids who don’t have an adequate space for studying. The desk is made of corrugated cardboard that can be folded up into an envelope with a handle, making it easier to carry around from place to place.
