Pencils of Promise's Difference:
100% Direct Giving
Donors rarely know where their money goes, so we set out to change this. By covering our operational costs through private donors, events and companies, 100% of every dollar donated online goes directly into our programs to educate more children.
100% Success Rate
We don’t just build a school and move on, we monitor and evaluate every project we undertake. Every school we’ve opened is fully operational and educating students daily.
100% Local Leadership
All of our Country Directors are from the countries they lead. This ensures our ability to respond to each country’s strengths and challenges in an authentic way
Pencils of Promise's Exit Plan:
We're dedicated to working closely with the communities where we build schools and offering meaningful support to our teachers in order to create sustainable gains in education outcomes. We're also committed to developing high-level partnerships early on with local and national governments. This model allows us to easily share the successes of our work, so that over time, governments can incorporate our programs and achieve widespread systemic improvement.
