This is the

SEASON OF PROMISE

Pencils of Promise builds more than just four walls.


From the start, we’ve believed a PoP school should be more than just a building. It’s the start of a transformative educational experience that includes inspired teachers, a proper learning environment, access to clean water and basic bathrooms. It’s a spark that creates a sustainable partnership with communities and unlocks the promise of generations to come.

There are 250 million kids who can’t read and write—together, we can change this. Join us as we build hope, joy, community and a brighter future this holiday season:

By helping provide PoP programming for one year

Giving kids the education they deserve:


QUALITY SCHOOL STRUCTURE

85% of the communities we visit lack basic school infrastructure.

We build schools to ensure that our students have access to an environment conducive to learning—a classroom where they can focus better, are more engaged in lessons and are safe from unpredictable weather conditions.


INSPIRED TEACHERS

Teachers are the key to getting children in school and keeping them there.

We’re focused on improving the learning experience for children inside our classrooms. By equipping our classrooms with innovative technology and empowered teachers who energize our classrooms with engaging, thoughtful lessons, we’re able to unlock the potential of thousands of students.


WASH

443 million school days are lost because of water- and sanitation-related diseases.

Our WASH (Water, Sanitation & Hygiene) program provides students with handwashing stations, clean drinking water filters, private bathrooms and hygiene lessons. We believe that these are quintessential elements that are not only inseparable from a quality education, but essential for the growth and development of students.

This is life-changing for students like Jemima in Ghana:


Meet Jemima. She’s nine years old, and she’s already dreaming of becoming a nurse one day. Thanks to her dedicated teachers, Jemima attends school every day excited to learn—and ready to dream.

Jemima is a fifth grade student at the Ziavi Dzogbe school in the Volta Region of Ghana, a school that benefits from both Teacher Support and WASH programming.

Today, Jemima no longer has to worry about having a safe and private location to use the bathroom and having access to a crystal-clear glass of clean water while in class. Jemima and her community are equipped with these necessities, as as well as lifesaving handwashing and hygiene skills.

Jemima’s education isn’t limited to the classroom. With an e-reader in hand, Jemima now has access to over 100 books in her local language putting the power of literacy—and her own future—in her own hands.

This is a quality education.


TOGETHER, WE CAN BRING QUALITY EDUCATION TO EVEN MORE KIDS AROUND THE WORLD:

We’ve built over 420 schools and are now impacting over 74,500 students every day.

We believe that a day will come in our lifetimes when every single child will have access to a quality education. Until then, each pencil, each dollar, each supporter is essential.
