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.
