101,881 pens and pencils have reached 101,881 children so far…

Pen’s to Sunrise Children’s Villages -Siem Reap

Jennifer Greene, Public Relations and Marketing Director for Raffles Hotels & Resorts, delivers pens and pencils to Sunrise Children’s Villages in Siem Reap, Cambodia. On meeting the children she reported that “…the experience is very moving. The Cambodian children are so loving and warm and want to be touched, held, etc. They loved the pencils.”



On a medical mission to Abancay, Peru, Kim Oppenheimer, packed her suitcases with clothes to donate. She was astonished that it was her pen that people continually asked for, even the nurses. Again, when she volunteered at a school in Windhoek, Namibia, she saw children using pencils an inch long. She figured if she wasn’t aware of this simple need, many other people weren’t either. She established Right-to-Write as a way to simply shift an abundance into a functional educational tool for children in developing countries. It’s a simple process that makes each person involved realize the positive impact they have upon one another.
