We're changing the face of sponsored education in developing countries, and via every Humble Pen purchase, we're able to provide critical needs to students in developing countries an opportunity to have a prosperous future. It's more than just a pen!
We believe that Humble beginnings can bring about great change. At Humble Pen, we believe that a simple letter, written with our handcrafted bamboo pen has the power to change many lives including those of underprivileged children, communities, artists, and the writer and recipient of the letter.
What we do matters...
we share what we make
and if we could reach out more,
that wouldn't be a small thing.
that would be a revolution.
PENS FOR CHANGE!
Humble Pen was inspired by two unlikely stories in two different countries. In 2012 Mihir, while visiting his grandparents in India, encountered the culture of pens and handwriting. Carrying beautifully designed pens in India is part of the everyday lifestyle. He also found it heartbreaking to see children working on the streets doing child labor instead of being in school.
Mihir went to Haiti to learn more about education in developing nations. Children in Haiti wrote letters to Mihir and those letters made him realize the value of handwritten communication. The children’s letters described what they aspire to become one day. They discussed how they wanted to help their communities overcome poverty. Mihir also met another inspiring person on their trip, an artist named Blondel Joseph. His artwork conveyed many stories hidden around colors and shape. Blondel shared the same passion as Mihir. Humble Pen was born!
