First piloted in 2012 and now a partner of INTO’s Global Solidarity initiative, The Pencil Case Appeal has sought to play a key role in raising awareness of the difficulties facing Haitian school-children by fostering links between children & schools.
It’s a simple idea. Irish school children will receive a pencil-case, which they must fill with their unwanted stationary items. It will be flown to our school network in Haiti where their gift will be gratefully received by school-children the same age. And so friendships begin.
