Our vision

Our vision is that children and young people in developing countries receive a solid school education as the basis for a self-determined life in their home country. We see education as the foundation for a world in which people can live in dignity, peace, security and in harmony with nature.

Our mission

Together with local partners, we improve teaching and learning conditions of schools in developing countries and implement educational projects where necessary. In our projects, children are taught regardless of gender, religion and origin.

We promote the social commitment of schoolchildren in Germany: We help them create an awareness of the educational situation in developing countries – and encourage them to engage for a sustainable improvement.

Our financing

Our activities are financed through donations, corporate social sponsorship, grants and the sale of products: For every pencil purchased, one pencil goes to a child in a developing country. For every notepad purchased, $1 will go to one of our educational projects. For every soap purchased, one of our school children receives a hygiene set (toothbrush, toothpaste, soap). For every keychain and cell phone strap purchased, one of our school children in Nepal receives urgently needed shoes for their way to school.

What our supporters say

A Bleistift FOR EVERYONE links two particularly important aspects: conscious consumption & social commitment. Here I know that my support will arrive without detours where it is needed mosturgently! I can easily help without having to take action myself. Anytime again!

I am impressed by the commitment of Maren Reisner. Traveling around the world with the whole family is already extraordinary, but to then commit oneself so consistently and sustainably to the improvement of the grievances in the developing countries visited is remarkable. This project is absolutely worth supporting.

Dr. Philipp Semmer

Managing Partner, Motu Ventures Management GmbH

All children who travel with us will each receive a pencil from A Bleistift FOR EVERYONE with their travel documents to support this beautiful project and make it even better known. It is a good feeling if we can contribute a little bit to improving the educational situation in developing countries.
