Est. 2005. We are a 501 C 3 charity registered in New York.
The Rosemary Pencil Foundation provides scholarships for students in Malawi, Zimbabwe and Zambia to attend secondary school. We also help students pursue higher education and vocational training. Over the last 15 years we have funded educational initiatives including after-school programs and a creative writing prize.
We started our scholarships in Malawi in 2006 and expanded to Zimbabwe and later Zambia with a ‘girls only’ program. More than 280 students have benefited from our program and the numbers keep growing. The Foundation covers tuition as well as school uniforms, shoes, when needed, additional books, sitting entrance exams and transportation to and from home for the holidays for those at boarding school.The Rosemary Pencil Foundation, in partnership with Worldreader, introduced e-readers to two girls boarding schools in Malawi, These devices give students more than 100 books by African, American and British authors to read as well as some Malawi secondary school curriculum.
