Pitney Bowes Supports The Non-Violence Project Foundation To Help Make Schools Safe And Close The Achievement Gap

It's no secret that victims of school bullying also suffer from low self-esteem and are regularly disengaged learners who have a tough time keeping up their grades. In fact, one in ten students drop out or change schools due to bullying.

Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE: PBI) today announced their support of The Non-Violence Project Foundation to help foster a climate of safe learning in schools by educating teachers on how to help build self-esteem in students and inspire, motivate and engage youth in solving conflicts peacefully.

Pitney Bowes is providing consulting and in-kind software donations to benefit the Schools and Sports for Peace Programs of The Non-Violence Project. As part of the global Imagine One Billion Faces for Peace initiative, The Non-Violence Project is one of the world’s largest violence-prevention organizations actively eliminating youth-violence and helping to make schools and communities safe.

“Pitney Bowes’s in-kind donation will enable us to more easily distribute our educational materials in many languages and with local adaptations, thereby providing a better user experience for those who wish to foster and promote peace in their communities,” said Jan Hellman, co-founder, The Non-Violence Project Foundation. “We are grateful for their generosity – which will help us to increase the operational efficiency of our Schools and Sports for Peace Programs – as well as their commitment to fostering safe learning environments.”

Each year, Pitney Bowes grants approximately $1.4 million to literacy and education organizations, with a particular focus on improving access to books, closing the achievement gap and preparing people for successful employment.

“Safe learning environments enable students and teachers to focus on the learning for growth of future leaders,” said John O’Hara, president, Pitney Bowes Software. “As a global leader in helping organizations communicate more effectively, Pitney Bowes is proud to maintain its legacy in support of literacy and education through our support of the Non-Violence Project.”
