Pen Drives and Donations

What a summer so far! We here at Pens To People have been busy supporting pen drives, collecting a record amount of pens, and donating them to the groups we trust most. First, we’d like to thank Sarah Allen for organizing her high school’s pen drive. Sarah helped bring the 1,026 pens we donated to Rwanda last summer with Putney and saw firsthand how excited the children there were to receive pens, so she wanted to do more for them. Awesome work Sarah! In addition, we’d like to thank Mendham …

A Donation 6 Years in the Making

Six summers ago Ryan traveled to Rwanda on an inaugural mission organized by Putney Student Travel. Today, Pens to People has the opportunity to donate pens to the same Rwandan teachers and schoolchildren who convinced him to start this project with their heartfelt accounts of being denied an education simply because they couldn’t afford the supplies required. The Putney Rwanda program is still going strong since that inaugural mission in 2008, and this year the group has agreed to accept as many pens as they can carry and hand deliver …
