We have connected over 1,600 pen buddies from the UK, Russia, Namibia, China, Hong Kong, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand and Malaysia since 2018.

Pen Buddies is a programme initiated by Wisdom Foundation to provide a safe platform for kids to make pen friends, learn about cultures around the world and grow wisdom together. Through workshops and letter exchange, we enable the children to overcome communication challenges, build their self-confidence, cultivate gratitude from mutual understanding, also reduce bullying and discrimination. We aim to cultivate the younger generation's aspiration to live in harmony and enjoy a better world.

Key Objectives

  • Improve language literacy for better communication skills

  • Develop a mutual understanding of different cultures

  • Promote mutual respect by understanding the differences 

  • Cultivate gratitude to shape thoughtful community

  • Improve self-confidence and equal learning opportunity

  • Reduce bullying and discrimination at school and other educational institutions

Our Goal

Our current goal is to sustain the connections between pen buddies and continue to deliver educational workshops to all participants. Since 2018, we have paired over 1,600 children from more than 11 locations across 9 countries.
