Friends in Far Away Places

How do you connect students at a middle school in rural North Carolina with graduate students in northern U.K. and Kenyan kids at a boarding school in Nairobi?

Enter, The Internet! (And some good old-fashioned networking, but more on that later.)

OHP is thrilled to announce a new partnership with The Mugumo Project, founded by an American woman now studying for her Masters in England, and Early Bird Academy in Kenya. The project was inspired by a pen pal program. Participating students will exchange videos of themselves, their schools, and their communities. A group of dedicated donors have already raised money for cameras to be purchased for The Mugumo Project.

Take a look at one of the letters that inspired me to connect with The Mugumo Project Founder about a partnership, and look for more info on the program to come in the near future!
