Schools & Pen-Pals

Is your school looking for a really worthwhile project in which to get involved?

  • One that sends you regular updates?
  • One that twins UK children with their Kenyan counterpart based on age, interests and gender?
  • One that encourages an exchange of ideas that increases understanding between the two cultures?

...then look no further!

 Future Hope Montessori School operates a very successful 'Pen-Pal' scheme that does just that!

The idea is that the school or family of a UK child sponsors a minimum of £10 per month, which covers the cost of food for their Future Hope counterpart for a month, or £20 per month, which covers all of the expenses for that child.  We request that the donations be made by Standing Order.


Our Goodwill Ambassador in charge of Pen-Pals, Fiona Spurling, is happy to come and make a presentation to your school. She can explain a bit about what we do and how the children, whilst from wildly differing backgrounds, are very alike in many ways and how rewarding the  Pen-Pal exchange can be. Visit our Contact Us Page for Fiona's details.





Currently we have the following schools participating in the scheme:

Hilden Grange – Tonbridge, Kent
Marlborough House School – Hawkhurst, Kent
Rolvenden Primary School – Rolvenden, Kent
Dunsford Primary, Dunsford, Devon
Leigh Primary, Leigh, Kent
Ysgol Brynsaron, Wales
St Mary Magdalen, London
The Magna Carta School, Middlesex


Of course, you don't have to do it through your school!  If you have a child or grandchild aged between 3-14 who would like a Pen-Pal, then we would love to hear from you.  Simply download the Penpal Application - 2017 fill in the details and send it off to us and we'll do the rest!
