We need to let the world know about the many children who have no access to education. What better way than to "wear-a-pencil” which is a symbol for education, literacy and hope. These pencil necklaces are designed by a local artist, Tchima Abdo, in Niger, Africa, who sculpted them from natural rock in the region and created the look of a real pencil.
Our campaign: Wear a pencil until every child in the world has a pencil. Companies, school groups or clubs can email us to find out how to get these for their fundraising campaigns!
When you wear a pencil people will ask you why and it becomes a wonderful opportunity to share the story!
