Spotlight On VENT For Change

Children all over the world lack access to proper education or basic learning tools. In some schools, large groups of children are forced to share exercise books, pens and pencils – as there aren’t enough to go around. Many children cannot attend school at all, because they are fleeing the devastation of war. We must raise awareness.

Share A Pencil Day

Wednesday 18th May 2022 is Share A Pencil Day, an annual event created by Vent for Change. This day aims to educate pupils across the UK about children facing educational difficulties. They encourage schools to participate by offering free interactive resources, including: lesson plans, short films, and other learning materials.
