250 Million

 
Can you imagine not being able to read this sentence? 
 
Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world. Education reduces poverty, empowers women and helps prevent disease. The cost of 250 million children around the world not learning basic skills translates into a loss of an estimated $129 Billion per year. Up to 75% of children in more deprived regions of poor countries can’t read a single word even after several years in school.

Vision of Change

 

In partnership with local governments and communities, non-profit Pencils of Promise will continue to provide students with access to safe primary schools, implement proven programs, invest in teacher quality and assess student progress in high-need areas. Their long-term vision is that their literacy-focused model will be available for governments and partners to adopt and scale incrementally beyond Pencils of Promise schools. They’re dedicated to working closely with the communities where they build schools and offering meaningful support to our teachers in order to create sustainable gains in education outcomes.

Supporting Pencils of Promise

 

Pencils of Promise believes every child should have access to quality education. They create schools, programs and global communities around the common goal of education for all. Today, Pencils of Promise works in Ghana, Guatemala, Laos and Nicaragua and has broken ground on over 400 pre and primary schools in remote and underserved regions. Each school was made possible by a person, a family or a company united by the goal of creating a better world through education.
