Who they are:
Pencils of Promise supports the growth of education systems in developing countries by building schools and partnering with local educators. They involve and require a number of community volunteers from the region to support, train and track each student to monitor and ensure their success. Pencils of Promise knows that every pencil, every dollar, and every volunteer is vital to their cause.

In order to communicate our main message, "pencils can do a lot more than you think they can," we chose a simple, storytelling approach with a quirky pencil character performing an array of unexpected tricks.
