Benjamin and Perez 4th and 8th grade, both decided to engage in Pencil Campaign, collecting: writing and teaching aids, including recreational materials for millions of poor rural pupils and people with disabilities in Africa. The targeted group is unable to afford writing materials, which is dearly in need. With your support, they are determined to meet pupils at their point of need, to give pupils the opportunity to learn how to use pencils, practice writing and write legibly at early stages of their life with your donations.

The demand for Pencils, Pens, Crayons, Sharpeners, Rubbers, and Chalks is a continuous process and speedily increasing, reasons why Benjamin and Perez are compelled to contact Pencil Ambassadors, like your dear for their continued donations.

Here are different ways you can help: by word of mouth, circulate flyer, organize a pencil drive, make pencil shoeboxes, making pencil drop boxes for schools, offices, churches, public places, etc.

Also accepting funds for pencil courier services - shipment delivery to final destination.
