International Pen Pals!


CRP has started a pen pal program between children in our community in East Amman and American students in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (USA). The children, all of whom are kindergarten or elementary school age, have just sent their first missives to one another. They have made drawings and written poems entitled “Where I Am From.” The poems describe their homes, families, and daily lives through their five senses to their new friends. Our kids’ letters will be translated to English for the American children, and letters come complete with colorful images and wonderfully descriptive language. We’re so happy about the chance this program gives our kids to get to know children from another country and to have shared experiences in the hope of building bridges of understanding from one side of the world to the other!
