Pens for Kids Portugal is a branch of Pens for Kids International, but does not yet have its own website, so here is a preliminary presentation of the organisation.
Pens for Kids Portugal is a local branch of the non-political, non-religious, non-profit charity organisation Pens for Kids International, the aim of which is to get writing utensils to underprivileged kids in the third world - primarily Africa.
Pens for Kids accepts donations of writing utensils such as pens, pencils, felt pens, rulers, erasers, gel-pens and the like, and sends them to Africa for distribution among kids who need them for their school work.
The pens are distributed through a network of local contacts - the so-called Pens for Kids Ambassadors, or through local non-profit charity organisations.
Pens for Kids is based entirely on volunteer work and has no administration costs other than shipping expenses for the pens.
