Pen Pal Program

With great excitement, the SHARE Pen Pal Letter Program was launched in March 2010. SHARE girls at the Kagema School in Tanzania initiated the program by writing 33 letters, in English, introducing themselves and their country to teenage SHARE volunteers in New Jersey. After that, there were numerous exchanges back and forth between the SHARE girls in Africa and the SHARE volunteers in North America. Approximately 70 teenagers participated in the program, which ended as the students graduated from high school.
