The Cause

Al­most ev­ery great idea that has trans­formed the world has started with a sim­ple piece of pa­per and a pen­cil.

Business Traveler (USA) - - MEETING MATTERS -

The Char­ity: Busi­ness Trav­eler and Busi­ness Travel Ex­ec­u­tive have cho­sen to sup­port Pen­cils for Kids, Inc. (PFK). This char­ity is ded­i­cated to help­ing chil­dren in de­vel­op­ing coun­tries around the world pre­pare to at­tend school and, in do­ing so, build a bet­ter foun­da­tion for a bet­ter fu­ture. Pen­cils for Kids equips chil­dren ea­ger for an ed­u­ca­tion with the tools they need to suc­ceed in school by pro­vid­ing them with back­packs filled with a year’s worth of school sup­plies and a voucher for the manda­tory school uni­form.

For many of us, go­ing to school and get­ting a pri­mary ed­u­ca­tion means hav­ing the sim­plest items such as pen­cils, crayons or cloth­ing. For th­ese chil­dren, it’s not al­ways the case.

Pen­cils for Kids equips cu­ri­ous minds with the tools to pos­si­bly bring a new so­lu­tion to an age old prob­lem, gain knowl­edge to help oth­ers or even in­vent some­thing new that might change the world. PFK is an or­ga­ni­za­tion that puts a back­pack filled with the ba­sics of ed­u­ca­tion — such as pen­cils and erasers, crayons and a ruler – in the hands of chil­dren to help them put their minds to work. It sounds so sim­ple. But we are all here for a big­ger pur­pose and it all be­gins with pro­vid­ing sim­ple things for our fu­ture gen­er­a­tions. Al­most all of the world’s big ideas start with a pen­cil and pa­per.
