At Friends of Padhar Schools, we encourage connecting people across cultures! Our Kid 2 Kid penpal program offers an opportunity for your children to connect with a student at the Happy Valley English School in Padhar, India. Writing to a penpal is a great way to learn about another culture, cultivate new friendships, and even grow compassion and empathy.All written communication will be in English and therefore accessible to all parties.

Our organization is established to support staff, teachers and students in rural India who want to attend school. We are currently working with eight schools in the states of Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. We encourage international donors to participate in funding the education of these children, in order to establish a partnership that crosses boundaries of culture, class, race, religion, disability, status or wealth.
