Project #4

Project Pencil

About

Challenge 100 has donated one hundred pencil cases and exercise books to School Aid’s Project Pencil.

Each day 40 million African children are unable to attend school. For many of them, this is simply because there are not enough basic school supplies. School Aid collects and transports surplus educational items from the UK directly to African schools in need.

Giving a child a pencil case filled with simple equipment like pencils, pens, erasers, pencil sharpeners, and rulers enables them to participate in daily class work and to sit for vital school exams.
