GALVESTON — A pen pal project originally set up to improve writing skills and promote cultural exchanges between fifth graders in Kenya and Galveston has led to new friendships and a gift program for students and staff.

"We were thrilled and grateful to receive such beautiful handmade gifts from Kenya,” the project’s founder Linda Ercole-Musso. The pen pal project links students at Galveston’s Ambassadors Preparatory Academy and St. Philips School Mathare in Nairobi, Kenya.
