About Pencils of Promise:
Pencils of Promise began with a simple act of giving when founder, Adam Braun, placed $25 into a bank account as PoP’s first donation. Since then, we have expanded immensely, both internationally and domestically. We are now in four countries, have impacted over 240,000 lives and have successfully broke ground on 200 schools.
