Changing the world with literacy and numeracy: This guy’s $25 education start up is now building a new school every 90 hours


This is literacy and numeracy literally changing the world… the developing world. They are now building a new school every 90 hours.The reason: 250 million primary-aged children lack basic reading writing, and maths skills and these guys intend to do something about it.

It takes US$25 to educate a child and US$25,000 to build an entire school. Watch and be inspired by Pencils of Promise. The founder, Adam Braun, started this not-for-profit, for-purpose business with $25.

Now, Adam’s award-winning nonprofit organization has broken ground on more than 150 schools around the world and has delivered over 5 million educational hours to children in poverty. Wow…!

Great podcast interview here with James Altucher interviewing Adam.
