Our Program Overview
Our unique program material covers 20 topics and enables a structured letter exchange based on the information and vocabulary we provide. Through our program, children, youth, and adults alike learn to create positive social change by engaging in conscious critical thought and action that examines assumptions, reactions, and outcomes.
STEP ONE: CONNECT CHILDREN
We match children and students aged 6-24 from various cultural backgrounds to exchange ideas and art, all while practicing English within our pen pal program. Each student is paired up with a peer from another country.
STEP THREE: CONDUCT EDUCATIONAL AND LETTER EXCHANGE3
This stage includes the actual interaction and sharing between children through our channels in the pen pal program. It is at the core of the Ubuntu Mail mission and carries with it exponential opportunities for
growth and insight.
STEP FIVE: CREATE AWARENESS
The exchanges made throughout the course of the pen pal program are assembled and exhibited for the purpose of informing others around the world of issues facing foreign cultures and inspire them to become involved.
STEP TWO: PROVIDE STRUCTURED FRAMEWORK
For optimal learning and communication, we provide all participants with our program materials, including:
- Ubuntu Mail Book
- Book of Letter Templates
- 20 Infographics
- Ubuntu Mail Bag and T-shirt
STEP FOUR: REVEAL A CHALLENGE
Our program and its materials are designed in a specific way so as to encourage discussions revolving around cultural spheres, daily challenges in communities, and global issues (such as globalization and poverty). This gives weight to the voices of children who would otherwise be silent and allows us to understand their lives more clearly.
STEP SIX: EMPOWER CHILDREN
Our programs build awareness, attract volunteers, and encourage partnerships to strengthen the foundation of good will and understanding around the world.
Ubuntu Mail distributes the profits and the funds raised by donors under an overarching sustainable solution for the schools and/or community. This includes Social Intervention, Micro Gardening, Family Planning, Eco Solutions, Micro Financing, Education Programs and training.
This final step of empowerment is essential and based on forming healthy, strategic bonds amongst organizations of the world to fight prejudice and suffering.
