Project 6

Project PEN PAL

Ishinomaki Children's Refuge Center X TAKANOHA collaboration!


A collaboration that will provide an opportunity for children to engage in a cultural exchange via a pen pal (art and letters) relationship. 
We are aiming for the following goals:
• promoting positive self-esteem
• developing and practicing communication skills
• provide participants with a greater understanding and
  appreciation of diversity
• to allow participants to express their artistic creativity
• to develop an international friend
