Write a pen pal letter to an African child

1-2 hours / monthly
Ongoing
In Africa there is a saying that states; A friend sometimes is better than even a brother, sister, cousin etc. Many African families and societies are tied up with poverty and cultures which every day causes illiteracy and early marriage amongst young people.
Due to poor parental care in families and high rate of school dropout, many young children become young mothers, husbands, and labourers at an early age of 12 years.
Through this pen pal program, children from poor backgrounds who lost hope about their future will get a friend like you who can spend 20-30 minutes a week or month to care about writing them encouraging letters on topics about education, love etc. and also on topics concerning dangers of illiteracy and cultural beliefs not forgetting Christmas, birth days and exams encouraging messages. This volunteer job is so interesting because you’ll also learn about African cultures, environment among others.
We have profiles of 100+ children who need encouraging letters from you, when you join us today then we shall be grateful to have you in our team.
Why should you volunteer for this opportunity?
-It allows you to expand what you know about the world and their cultures.
-It encourages deeper connection and builds patience for a vulnerable child you care about to complete his/her education.
-It improves reading and writing skills of children.
