Peace Letter Program
We Make Peace offers a Peace Letter exchange program for students between age 10-12 years. This is an exciting chance for students to befriend a student from another country through letter exchanges.
It is our aim to promote friendships across borders, enhance literacy and acceptance of diversity, to activate empathy and increase awareness of peace as a strong ideal for young people to aspire to.
Over the last five years we have developed this program where students from different countries write letters with each other.
