Pencils of Promise Picks up Entrepreneurial Momentum

Adam Braun, founder of Pencils of Promise, is giving nonprofits a no-nonsense way to bring entrepreneurship to the next level. Pencils of Promise is a philanthropic organization that focuses on forming sustainable educational programs, and forging long-lasting, partnerships with communities. The organization aims to increase access to quality education and impact students and their families in high-need communities throughout Laos, Ghana and Guatemala.

Currently in its fifth year, Pencils of Promise is churning out growth numbers that would satisfy even the most competitive venture capitalist. Donations start pouring in as building schools in developing countries can be costly. Braun’s goal is to build more than 500 schools, train 1,000 teachers and have 10,000 students in the program’s scholarship program.
