Slum children need your help to go to school !

Please join and support me as I ride 13,000km around Australia, raising awareness of this fantastic charity. Leaving 4 March 2023 from Cabarita Beach, NSW. Follow our daily journey here on instagram pedlforpenciltree

High 5 me!! with as little as a $5.00 donation to keep me motivated throughout this long journey (of course, larger donations are also gratefully appreciated).

I am seeking donations to be able to provide the funds for the following:

In 2023 we will be placing 20 more children from the slums into the school at a cost of $76,000 for their entire school life (Kindy to the end of High School). Thus breaking the generational poverty cycle.

Pencil Tree helps change the lives of underprivileged children in India
In 2019, Pencil Tree funded a brand new school built for the Tong-Len charitable trust. A massive undertaking that so many wonderful people helped us achieve via donations.

Pencil Tree started when a few friends from Australia were visiting India and discovered that many children were going to school without even a pencil to write with.

Thank you for your generous support as we help to improve the lives of slum children in Northern India.
