Mission Statement

Our vision is to make a difference in the world by providing every child the opportunity for an education.
Our mission is to partner with communities to create sustainable educational opportunities by providing programs, resources and infrastructure.

Description

When the founders of Pencils for Kids discovered in December 2005 that 30 children were sharing ONE pencil in a community in Niger, Africa they decided to act. Since that time, P4K has partnered with Liboré, a community of 25,000 people in Niger, where only two schools go beyond Grade 6. Since 2006, P4K has sent over 20,000 kilograms of school supplies, created pen-pal relationships, built three schools, a library, opened a sewing centre for girls and started sponsoring scholarships for girls.
We have also piloted the first Farmers of the Future program in three village schools, teaching children in primary school to move from subsistence farming to a business model where they can learn how to market their produce and invest their earnings.
We do this one pencil, one book and one community at a time.
