Pennies for Peace (P4P)

We bring cultural and philanthropic education to students, educators, and individuals all over the world. In the villages of Central Asia, an education provides the opportunity to break the cycle of extreme poverty, violence, and war.

As people all around the world participate in Pennies for Peace, they broaden their cultural horizons, and come to understand their own capacity as philanthropists.

To help make P4P campaigns more meaningful, we have created FREE curricula for grades K-12. Our lesson plans, activities, and resources help students understand the oftentimes complex issues surrounding education in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Tajikistan.
