Each year, we purchase new pens, pencils, scissors etc for the new school year.. what do you do with all the excess?
We have set up a box at the school office so you can donate your stash to www.pencils.org.au which is an organisation that was founded in Australia with the simple belief that one pencil can change the world.
'When a child has a pencil they can learn, create, express, grow, write, colour and initiate thought and change. It is the foundation of learning - when one can draw and write and read then the world can become their oyster'
The only problem is that not every child across the globe has access to pencils (and pens, paper, schools and education), something most of us take for granted.
Our mission is to get pencils directly into the heart of humanity: our children, who are in schools and orphanages across the globe. Help them "learn to colour their world."
