TRYcycle / Upcycled Pallet Tricycle Desk


I believe that every child has the right to an education regardless of who they are,
where they live or how much money their family has.
I watched a documentary about poor educational environment.
the video showed many children who have to walk a lot to go to school.
even the school didn’t have enough desks and didn’t have lights to brightens the dark.

TRYcycle distributes upcycled pallet tricycle desk kits to children in poor learning environment.
TRYcycle can be a mobile desk and generate electricity by a pedal generator.
generated electricity lights the lantern on the bicycle.
