The Kenyan teachers are very excited about these kids having the opportunity to learn to express themselves - which is the very essence of empowerment. And they want to expand the penpal program to include the boys as well. But there are more Kenyan kids who want to participate than we can accommodate right now.
We need more penpals!
This is a very carefully monitored exchange. All the letters go through our office and are checked for content that might be offensive or is just too mature.
So if you know of 6th - 8th grade girls or boys who would like to exchange letters with a contemporary in Kenya, please have them email me (judy.craig@EliminatePovertyNow.org). We'd love to have them join us!
