Students from Estrella Foothills Global Academy have found pen pals in the African country of Malawi.

Kim Rillero, program director of Urban Farming Education, developed a relationship with the school during a recent partnership summit. Rillero discussed her travels to Malawi and the Likuni Boys Secondary School with school administration.

Soon, a pen pal and virtual student exchange experience was formed. Rillero presented information to EFGA students about life in Malawi and what school is like for the students who live there.

Students in 7th and 8th grade began sending letters to the students who wrote back in return.

This has been an amazing global experience for EFGA students and the school hopes to continue this exchange of letters and hopefully set up a virtual meeting as well.
