Justin Bieber has teamed up with the charity Pencils of Promise to spread the reality of global education.
Currently, an estimated 75 million of the world’s children have no access to formal educational opportunities. Justin Bieber has joined forces with Pencils of Promise to tackle this lack of access to education one pencil a time. Their immediate aim is to give every child who needs one a pencil and a backpack.
Pencils of Promise is a non-profit organization aiming at bringing education to communities of underprivileged children. The charity believes that education is a basic human right to which everyone is entitled. They support the idea that building educational structures like schools will help create self-sustainability and ownership in underprivileged areas. That way, they seek to break the cycle of poverty and deprivation that have existed for generations in some areas.
The charity partnered with Justin Bieber to create the “Schools 4 All” initiative.
Whoever can raise the most money for Pencils of Promise with their fundraising page gets a special visit from Justin Bieber at a school of the winner’s choice.
If you would like to create your own page, do something good for charity and possibly win a visit from Justin Bieber, it is easy. You just need to visit the website schools4all.org and follow the simple instructions to get started.
