The Program

In this penpal art share program, our children in Los Angeles share postcards with children in India, Uganda, and Lebanon. Each month we select a theme and the children create their own piece of art on a postcard to send to their buddy. Questions are exchanged with each postcard and the experience teaches children to appreciate the differences and similarities between their penpal’s life and their own.

The Impact

This program expands children's world view, understanding of geography, other countries and cultures and encourages gratitude, tolerance and empathy.
