We have connected over 800 pen buddies from the UK, China, Hong Kong, Cambodia, Russia, Namibia, Malaysia and Vietnam since 2018.
Pen Buddies is a project initiated by Wisdom Foundation to provide a safe platform for kids to make pen friends, learn about multicultural around the world and grow wisdom together. Through the process of workshop learning and letter exchange, it enhances their ability to overcome communication challenges, build their self-confidence, cultivate gratitude from mutual understanding, also reduce school bullying from discrimination. We aim to cultivate the younger generation's aspiration to live in harmony and enjoy a better world.
