Crates to Classrooms
Jaguar Land Rover has donated its 700th upcycled desk to a village school in rural India. The ‘Crates to Classrooms’ initiative was the brainchild of employees at Jaguar Land Rover’s Pune manufacturing plant as a way to support the education of disadvantaged local children, whilst finding a second life for wooden pallets used to deliver parts to the plant.
Working with a local carpenter, engineers in Pune converted the pallets and crates into handmade school desks in three different sizes for children of all ages. In the last four years, the team has donated 700 desks to seven schools in and around Pune benefitting more than 1,000 local children.
