Pencil Case Appeal.

Does your school need a charity?

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.

Our Story

What is it all about?

Two Countries

Haiti and Ireland; two islands with no land between them. Haiti 9 million people, and Ireland 4 million people.

The Earthquake

4,000 schools in Haiti, 3,640 destroyed. Two Petes went as Clowns to Haiti after the earthquake to help.

Clowns Take Action

The Irish clowns made Haitians smile again. We have rebuilt 1 temporary primary school already for Bishop and Gladys.

Friendships Begin

Once rebuilt, a Haitian school will be twinned with an Irish school. Funds go to resourcing schools, linking children via performing arts.

Time to Learn & Explore

Students and teachers will learn about and visit each other's country.

Endless Possibilities

This long term project starts with Irish and Haitian students during their primary school years.
