Dzaleka Pen Pal Program


The Pen-Pal Program is built to foster meaningful relationships between people currently experiencing displacement in Dzaleka Refugee Camp and people passionate about humanitarianism. Pals wills learn from each other by sharing stories, such as talking about daily experiences and past experiences, interesting events, favorite foods, hobbies, etc. The program is a partnership between Refugee Outreach Collective and the Emmanuel Foundation that connects people across borders, spreading and magnifying our values of friendship and compassion.
