From Kids to Kids

GG & her editor would be so very happy to hear from readers who decide to participate in this program. Hone your correspondence skills by writing to our friends! ciao-meow on the first day of autumn/GG Central

The Darfur Schools Program has seen tremendous support from schools across the U.S. Students ranging from kindergarten through college have held successful fundraisers and community awareness events. No matter how big or small, their goal is the same: to bring much-needed relief to the people of Darfur.

This fall, DPDO is initiating From Kids to Kids, an informal pen-pal project. Students in the U.S. can create artwork, take photos, and write notes that will be delivered to a school in Darfur. These messages of hope and peace will brighten classrooms in Darfur and spirits of Darfuri students. DPDO encourages student supporters in the US to send correspondence to:

Darfur Peace & Development Organization
“From Kids to Kids”
P.O. Box 66475
Washington, DC 20035-6475

Correspondence packages will be delivered to a Darfur School of Peace. When possible, photos and drawings from that classroom will be sent back to DPDO.

Contact with any questions. Please notify DPDO before sending any boxes heavier than 48 ounces (3 lbs).
