We believe there is no better activity to facilitate intercultural understanding while making new friends then having a pen pal! This will be a pilot program that if successful we would like to be incorporated with the regular curriculum for future students. We are quite excited about the possibilities and partnerships that could result through the implementation of this into the education of these children!
mong the many benefits of incorporating a pen pal program are: it hones reading & writing skills, it encourages empathy, it promotes patience, it fosters interest in social studies, and it supports development of social skills. With all of these great attributes that can be potentially acquired for these children we believe this program will be a win-win for everyone involved! Please contribute to this project so that we can help make this a reality!
