Wisdom PenBuddies® is a project initiated by Wisdom Foundation to provide children an experience to learn about different cultural backgrounds and enhance their ability to overcome communication challenges. This is a project to bring people from different corners of the world together and closer, so that our children will be able to build their self-confidence and awareness by experiencing the world and life through writing letters to their pen buddies in
At the same time, children can understand the background and culture of being appreciative. Also, we cultivate the right attitude of the younger generation to live in harmony and create a better world in the future.
