THE STORY:

  It is too often we take education for granted in our lives. Education is the foundation that has led to all of our greatest accomplishments and opportunities up until now and will continue to drive our successes in the future.  Education is what gives me purpose and the drive to wake up every morning. Education has allowed me to travel to 33 countries, give purpose to those around me, has given me constant daily determination, positivity in every situation I counter and most importantly, the ability to connect and relate to people of any age in any country around the world. Education represents hope for tomorrow. Education has allowed me to create my own happiness, challenge myself beyond my own limits, and motivate and inspire others to live every day with joy, appreciation.  Without education, people around the world are not able to have purpose. Purpose creates a feeling that we are part of something bigger than ourselves, that we are all here for a reason, that we have something in front of us to achieve. Purpose is what enables us to achieve our own definition of happiness.  250 million of our global brothers and sisters are unable to do so due to inadequate education services and facilities. Please stand with me and help share our privilege of education to allow others to create their own happiness, turn dreams into realities, and create a world of peace rather than division. 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.
