Could a pencil help to fight hunger?

Who hasn’t chewed on a pencil while hard at thought? Yet, in this film, the image of a pencil in the mouth of an African child takes on a whole new meaning, highlighting the fact that basic education can not only help to stop hunger but also contribute to a sustainable living. Within just 2 weeks, 5,000 paid text messages were sent to support the construction of a school in Rwanda, all-the-while helping to raise awareness of ActionAid’s work.
