Pen Pal Project

UK Reads Pen Pal Project connects school children in disadvantaged areas of the UK with off-the-grid schools in sub-Saharan Africa.

The children are given the opportunity to explore each other’s cultures and engage in crafting beautiful letters for a real purpose.

This cultural exchange aims to:

  • Broaden children’s horizons
  • Create authentic opportunities to learn about another culture
  • Celebrate diversity
  • Increase literacy engagement and enjoyment
