The 1st Pencils of Promise Students

Pencils of Promise

Meet Nit, Nut and Tamund. This video was taken by PoP Founder Adam Braun on April 3, 2009 while helping build our 1st school in Pha Theung, Laos. Three curious friends walked over, they were unsupervised, with no classes to attend... They were about to become our first students.

They're now attending classes. Future female leaders. Empowered.
