Pencils of Promise (“PoP”) is a for-purpose organization founded in 2008 with the goal of increasing access to quality education for children in the developing world. PoP works with communities in Ghana, Guatemala and Laos to build schools and create programs that provide educational opportunities for children. To date, PoP has built over 360 schools and provided access to education to more than 33,000 students across the globe, establishing itself as a leader amongst the innovative global nonprofits working toward sustainable social change.
I'm excited to partner with PoP for my first half marathon. As an educator, the PoP mission is close to my heart. Working for a nonprofit myself, PoP's innovative practices make it all the more exciting to partner with in moving the field forward!
