On December 1st, 2020, Practical Education Network will be joining millions of people from around the world to celebrate the Giving Tuesday Campaign - a global generosity movement.

GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and their world. GivingTuesday will kick off the generosity season this year by inspiring people to give back on December 1, 2020, and throughout the year.

This global generosity movement was launched in 2012 as a simple idea: to create a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

This GivingTuesday, Practical Education Network will inspire generosity by inviting friends to join our PEN Pals Monthly Donation program. PEN Pals is a fundraising program where donors commit to donating at least $20 each month. With this amount, one Ghanaian child gets a practical, hands-on STEM education for a school year.

We joined this year’s GivingTuesday to enable us to raise $2000 from generous donors who will commit to the PEN Pal program of at least $20 a month. We will be sharing videos of a typical hands-on training to give you a glimpse of what we do for our teachers; a live interview for Dr Heather Beem to share what inspired her to set up PEN in Ghana after her PhD at MIT; in addition to a team dance to showcase the PEN culture.

This will be broadcast live on our Youtube and Facebook.

The monthly donors get to join our prestigious donor list called PEN Pals. This tax-deductible monthly donation will go into programming and operational support of PEN.
