Honourable UK Charity Ambassador

If we are ever to come close to achieving peace in the world, it will be by mutual understanding, respect and tolerance for other cultures and ways of life. The best time for this to start is with young people which is why I want to promote PenBuddies project in any way that I can.

The scheme seems to be a great way to build understanding and cooperation between young students of different nations into an educational programme from an early stage.  I believe it also supports children from under-privileged backgrounds in their studies.
