Pens for Kids will be in Prague

Pens for Kids will be in Prague

Pen for Kids is one of organisations supported by the EMWA Sustainability SIG (SUS-SIG) in the spirit of circular economy (reduce, re-use!).

A pen is something that you would expect every medical writer to have on their desk - or close by in a drawer at least! Most likely you have a collection of pens from different companies, congresses, trade fairs and so on scattered around your house. But what about the children who do not possess one? How can they continue with their education? Pens for Kids is a not-for-profit organisation focused on sending pens and pencils to children around the world who cannot afford such items for their education. Here's how you can help:

  1. Bring your no-longer-needed pens and pencils to the Prague conference. We will have a pen collection box for you.
  2. Donate pens or money towards shipping through
