My 9 year has just finished a month long study on Africa and is very interested in finding a penpal from Africa. I surfed the net a little and had trouble locating a place that had penpals of that age ( most are late teens to early 20's). Does anyone have any good information on this. Thanks so much

The best way...
Go through someone you know. You don't know anyone who knows someone in Africa? Or maybe the Tribes forum for Africa? Or an organization you are connected with and see if they have any people in Africa.

I could probably connect you with a penpal in Ethiopia, but it depends on if you are Christian or not.

I could speak to a Kenyan family that live up the road. I think the one daughter might be about your daughter's age and she might be interested...
