Pencils of Promise

The UT Austin Spring 2015 Class found their $25,000 grant to Pencils of Promise to be a success because it was able to help many people in the area and was spent as intended. Pencils of Promise strives to increase literacy rates in several developing countries by building schools and funding quality education programs. The grant allowed for the construction of a three-classroom school with an office in Ghana, Africa. The school has served hundreds of students and members of the community.
