Digital penpals in Senegal?

Monday, 24 February 2014

Did your group enjoy writing stories for Hands In! 2014? Do you want to make friends with young people on another continent? We'd like to hear from any Venturer group interested in becoming penpals with young people in Dakar, Senegal, where young Woodcraft Folk member Fred is volunteering as part of the European Voluntary Service.

This is a chance for groups to use more than a letter or an email to share their Woodcraft experiences and see what life is like for young people in Senegal - you could swap videos, make a joint Tumblr or arrange a regular Skype call. Being creative and visual with your communication should help overcome some of the language barrier and give a really rich insight into each others' lives.

Contact Fred if you or your group are interested and he will pair you up with young people he volunteers with in Senegal.
