The Letter Exchange Program (LEP) aims to promote cultural exchange, cultivating a deeper global knowledge, while building and honing skills in reading and writing English. This program is for children between the age of 8 and 10 years, and will give these children an early understanding of other people’s life circumstances. The program also provides an opportunity for children to create friendships across national borders.
There is an unjustifiable inequality in the distribution of resources in our world. In some parts people are starving and in other parts people live in wasteful excess. There are many geopolitical, social, and geographic reasons for this. However, factors that can exacerbate this situation include lack of knowledge, understanding, and compassion among different peoples of the world. To overcome this gap in knowledge, understanding and compassion, we need to learn about other cultures, other countries, and other traditions.
