Together we can help children in Zambia to support their education.
There is a big shortage of writing materials in Zambia. Basic items like pens, pencils and notebooks are essential for education. In developed countries we take these for granted, since they are widely available.
For the children in Zambia, writing materials are scarce and considered a “luxury item”. In some cases, a single pen is shared with four students…!
With Basic Write, we are collecting pens and notebooks for the Linda Community School in Livingstone, Zambia.
Together we can make a difference!
Basic Write Mission & Goals for 2020
Together we can have a great impact, but it is important to stay focussed on the mission. With the Basic Write team we have set some clear goals for this year.
Can you help us to reach these goals?
The mission of Basic Write is to give all the children in Zambia access to a pen and paper in 2025.
Everyone that believes in this mission can contribute. As simple as following us on Instagram, telling others about the project or by donating writing materials. We love your support.
Where can I donate my writing materials?
We want to make it as easy as possible to donate your writing materials. Let us know where you would like to donate pens or notebooks. We will connect you to our Basic Write Collectors. You can also drop it at our Public Collection Points.
The first Public Collection Point is located in the iconic “Groot Handelsgebouw“, next to the train station. You can find the collection box on the fourth floor, at the front desk of our partner CiC Rotterdam. Don’t forget to ask them about the great workplaces they offer.

Basic Write Team
Things are moving fast. This motivated team is the base for a brand new NGO. We enjoy working together, to reach the goals and make a difference for children in Zambia. The best part: everybody is volunteering! We believe that money is not the only thing that makes the world go round. The donations should end up in Zambia, not in the our pockets. Helping out is what we do and what makes us happy. Do you want to join the work force and make things go even faster? Become a Basic Write Ambassador today!Join the Basic Write Team now
