It all started with a pencil. That’s right…a pencil.

Adam worked for Bain Consulting and was on the fast track to all of his hopes and dreams or so he thought. For some time, the young boy’s words haunted him and during a night at the symphony, Pencils of Promise was born.
Education was a gift given to him by his parents and he wanted to give the gift back by helping children all over the world receive an education.
