“With an avid interest in the field of education, especially in the government sector, I found PEN to be the best organisation to work with.

Understanding the drawbacks and limitations of government schools, here I saw hope through the direction of the organization and the dedication of its employees.

I hope to continue my association with PEN, and wish them the very best of luck!”
