Our Story

We believe all students should be given a chance to enhance their education 

-Sanaa Ghanim

Our Mission

Give a Pencil is dedicated to securing the right to education across the Dallas area. We believe in equity in the education system and supporting every student’s path to academic success. In order to support these paths, we collaborate with Texas public school teachers in an effort to gain a
thorough understanding of their student’s needs.

By providing these students with necessary tools,

we work to eliminate the idea that a

student’s socioeconomic background

should dictate their future.



Give a Pencil is focused on improving the educational experience of students in elementary, middle, and high school, with a primary focus on low-income public schools. The students we support are bright, driven, and eager to reach their academic goals and aspirations.

Our Vision

We envision a world where every student in Texas, regardless of family income, possesses the tools they need in order to maximize their academic success.
