ADAM BRAUN / THE PROMISE OF A PENCIL 04/02/14

How an Ordinary Person Can Create Extraordinary Change
It began with a question
to a small boy, begging on the streets of India.
"What do you want most in the whole world?,"
Adam asked.
"A pencil," the boy replied.

Adam Braun reached into his backpack,
handed the boy his pencil, and watched
as a wave of possibility washed over the small boy.

Adam saw then the profound power and promise brought through something as small
as a giving a pencil to just one child.

Over the next 5 years, Adam backpacked through over 50 countries.

From conversations with local parents & children, Adam realized the need for a nonprofit led on-the-ground - & he founded PENCILS OF PROMISE in 2008.

Starting with a $25 deposit, Adam & PoP have now built more than 200 schools in Africa, Asia & Latin America.

Join Julie Ann and Adam, Founder of PoP, & author of the bestselling book, "The Promise of a Pencil: How an Ordinary Person Can Create Extraordinary Change" - as they explore Adam's unique “For-Purpose” approach, blending nonprofit idealism with for-profit business principles.
