One Million Pencils for Africa believes foremost in sustainability. We rely on carefully-chosen partner organizations to deliver pencils to students, as these organizations have already established relationships with schools and educators. The majority of the schools served by these organizations are rural, without regular access to school supplies, and are being assisted in additional ways to ensure that each child receives the best education that they can. Learn more about what each organization does to serve students, besides delivering pencils.
