One Rubber One Pencil

“One Rubber One Pencil Project” Brings the Schools and the Donors Together

The new member of Sabanci Foundation Turkey’s Changemakers Program is One Rubber One Pencil project which is an online platform that brings schools in need together with people willing to donate.

The One Rubber One Pencil project is implemented in partnership with the Ministry of Education. In this project, the teachers designated as school representatives create their online school profile containing visual and textual information. The donation requests of the schools are shared with donors via these profiles on the project website at www.birsilgibirkalem.org. Individual and corporate donors can easily track the list of schools from all over Turkey, learn their basic needs and choose the specific project they like to support. Until 11 January 2013, the date the Turkey’s Changemakers video was published, 983 schools and 3.292 donors have registered to the website; 442 donation requests have been fulfilled reaching a total donation of 73.901 TL. Each day more and more requests are matched with donors via this platform.

The project owners work hard to complete each donation process smoothly

The project team makes every effort to achieve a smooth and healthy execution of each donation process. Both schools and donors are supported in the supply of the needed items, logistics, tracking of the donation, the feedbacks after the donation and reflections on the social media. The most popular requests submitted to the platform are chalk, paper, dictionary, board, heater and photocopy machine. Turkish Philanthropy Funds, Orhan Holding, Teknosa and Yurtiçi Kargo are among the sponsors of the project.
