For the past two years social enterprise Vent for Change has been raising awareness of global education issues through our annual Share a Pencil Day. This year, Share a Pencil Day took place on Wednesday 22 May 2019. It’s purpose is to help schools, teachers and pupils to explore the reasons why millions of children globally are still missing out on an education, why that matters and what can be done to help.
