About Global Pen Friends

The Global Pen Friends project allows students to correspond with each other across continents on global development topics. The most inspiring letters get published on this blog. 

The University Foundation for Development Cooperation (USOS) supports a network of six higher education institutes. This project is one of the concrete achievements of the network to engage students in an in-depth dialogue.
