Wisdom (Zhihui) Foundation
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.
Community Development Officer

I have been fortunate enough to work with the Wisdom Foundation over a number of years, they are hardworking, aspirational and hold their 5 key missions at the heart of all their projects. Catherine and Betty are great to work with, full of energy, passion and experience. The Wisdom Foundation supports us at BCP Council to connect our vibrant communities, on a global, national and national scale.

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.
