Sequel’s Global Impact with Pencils of Promise
Pencils of Promise couldn’t be more excited that Sequel is part of our PoP Family! Sequel first joined us in 2017 with the launch of the PoP x Sequel Time to Give campaign—and our team is truly grateful for the support that you have provided to our students and communities in such a short amount of time. Your generosity will make quality education possible for students who need it most—we thank you for partnering with us and look forward to witnessing the impact you’ll create for generations to come.
Thanks to Sequel’s support, PoP has officially completed two school builds, one in Guatemala and another in Laos. We are well on our way to serving thousands more students around the world!
An update from Línea B-2 Sector Icán, Guatemala…
Previously, the Línea B-2 Sector Icán school posed a significant hazard to student safety and learning. Without a solid foundation, the structure of the school was sunken, cracked and in danger of collapsing. Students experienced overcrowding, with two or three grades assigned to a single classroom at a time. These conditions caused distractions that hindered students from reaching their full potential and promise. Thanks to your support, PoP and the Línea B-2 Sector Icán community have officially completed a new three-classroom school! All of the currently enrolled students are so excited to soon have access to a higher-quality learning environment.
An update from Thong Phieng Vilai, Laos…
Due to overcrowding in the Thong Phieng Vilai community’s previous school, many students were forced to attend class in a structure with cracked walls, broken floors and leaky roofs made from bamboo. These conditions posed a danger to student safety and well-being, as well as to engagement and learning. Thanks to your support, PoP and the Thong Phieng Vilai community have built a new three-classroom unit to replace the dilapidated structure. The new structure will provide a safe and secure space for all Thong Phieng Vilai students to learn and thrive!
