Through the work of Rotary (who have a long-standing focus on literacy) The Pencil Project assists the education of children in Zimbabwe. In the excess of our first world comfort, it’s hard to imagine that schooling could be hampered by a lack of the most basic tool – something to write with.
If you have pencils, crayons or chalk to spare, they’d love to receive them. VicSuper gratefully accept both new and pre-loved pencils, crayons, chalk, sharpeners and erasers (they cannot accept pens, textas or books).
No doubt this is a great project, but as stationery is one of the most hoarded items, I’m curious to know what’s in your office that you know you should get rid of but haven’t??
