Education is a chief factor in breaking the cycle of poverty and giving kids a chance at a great life, and this is the premise of the Pencil Promise organization. Using their one-for-one promotion to allow children to attend school and get a basic education, they fill backpacks with school supplies and sell them online for $25. Once having bought a backpack with school supplies, an identical backpack will be given to a child in need around the world.

Many children have access to school systems, but are unable to attend because they don’t have the access to the supplies they need. Hoping to stop this cycle, the Pencil Promise has created a smart, simple and proactive approach to driving education around the world. As one of the foremost problem-solving solutions, education is one of the most pressing concerns worldwide. The contributions being made by the Pencil Promise are fundamental in addressing these concerns.
