Looking for a Proven Service Learning Program?
Interested in Advancing Peace through Education?

Pennies for Peace (P4P) is a service-learning program of Central Asia Institute, a nonprofit organization that empowers communities of Central Asia through literacy and education, especially for girls, promotes peace through education, and conveys the importance of these activities globally.

We invite you to participate!

Participants collect pennies. In Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Tajikistan, just a few pennies can buy a pencil, open the door to literacy, and CHANGE A LIFE.

It’s a FUN SERVICE-LEARNING PROGRAM that educates children about how they can make a positive impact on a global scale, one penny at a time.

It comes with a FREE TOOLKIT with standard-aligned K-12 curriculum for teachers.

Students, our future leaders, learn how to become PHILANTROPISTS and ACTIVISTS in the creation of GLOBAL PEACE.

A day in the life of an Afghan Girl

Gul Bahar, an 8th-grader in Afghanistan’s remote Wakhan Corridor, is determined to get an education. Although the closest school is miles from her home, she eagerly dons her uniform and only pair of shoes each morning to make the 90-minute trek to school. Join Gul Bahar as she rises before dawn to do her chores, walks to school with her classmates, cooks with her mother, and does her homework. See for yourself how CAI is making a difference for children and their families in one of the Last Best Places.
