In the countries Pencils of Promise partners, less than half of children have what they need to progress from primary to secondary school. Pencils of Promise scholarships give students the resources they need for a full year of secondary school.
Every year of school brightens the promise of a child's future. One scholarship covers a year of education for a child. It includes a backpack with school supplies, school fees like tuition or boarding fees, and a school uniform. The cost per student is approximately £165 ($250), but the impact on their future is much greater. As well as helping through purchasing our products, you can also help us to help Pencils of Promise by donating directly here.
By the end of 2015, PoP will build 500 schools, train 1,000 teachers, provide 10,000 student progression scholarships and teach 10,000 students about Water Sanitation & Hygiene. Help us to help PoP create a world where education and opportunity exists for all children.
