“Pencils are the most iconic educational tool going back centuries and I wanted to do something with them, something inspirational.” Evan Lewis Founder
VENT for Change is a Bristol based sustainable stationery company that supports children’s education projects worldwide.
When founder Evan Lewis pondered on how he could make a real difference with the one million spare pencils being produced each year, he realised that the key was money. Money to rebuild schools, pay teachers and provide essential materials. Evan decided to sell his pencils and other stationery here in the UK and from the proceeds support existing education projects around the world.
Evan also launched Share a Pencil Day, a global education awareness day for UK school children. And his Ambassador for Change programme which provides free pencils to charities and volunteers working overseas. Pencils to be given out FREE to those that need them most.
