Our focus quickly grew from simply pencils to all type of school supplies - in order to appropriately meet the needs of children. 

Please see our school supplies page for updated information



Pencils are seeming small and insignificant, yet they play a vital role in the learning process.  Children have an on-going demand for them in their educational process.



We invite schools, groups, companies and individuals to partner with us to collect or sponsor the sending of a drum of pencils and other school supplies.  We continue to empower the education and development in diverse ways. Read below a report from one of our support groups and partnership schools. 

 Completed Pencil Project - Prairie Grove Junior High School

Email quote one of our newletter readers:

 “The Pencil Project brings to mind the young people in Kenya from many years ago who wanted our pens and pencils---I had gone armed with extras. I was down to just one pen when I dropped it in an unsavory puddle of water. Being without a writing instrument was very inconvenient for the rest of the trip. Something so simple we take for granted. I just recommended to the mother of a student who is going to Africa this summer to take pens and pencils with him for gifts."    Janet F.  Tennessee
