Pencils of Promise (PoP) is guided by a revolutionary “for-purpose” approach. Blending the head of a for-profit business with the heart of a humanitarian nonprofit, PoP rigorously measures the return on investment of every donor dollar we spend. Joy and passion are great, but results are key.

Pencils of Promise doesn’t just build a school and move on, they monitor and evaluate every project they undertake. Each of the 363 schools that they’ve opened since 2009 is fully operational and educating students daily.
