Help Letters of Love send Handwritten Postcards to Refugee Children.

From being an idea a 23-year old Indian Engineer turned Teacher  woke up with after being deeply disturbed by watching the live streamed Syrian War & Refugee Crisis at the comfort of her safe home in 2015 and not doing anything about it, Letters of Love is now a youth-led international Non-Profit Organisation based out of Delaware, USA, that makes a difference to global refugee crises through handwritten letters. We work towards providing psycho-social support to refugee children as well as creating an aware, empathetic citizenry of young changemakers.


With a vision to create a kind world for refugee children, our diverse team of 25 volunteers with an average age of 22 years from 11 countries (our youngest is 13 years old!) believe in doing whatever we can, with whatever we have, wherever we are. Keeping the power of a handwritten letter as the pivot, our wheel of change runs broadly on 3 spokes -

1.
We send handwritten letters to Syrian, Iraqi, Yazidi, Afghan, Kurdish, Palestinian and Rohingya refugee children as tokens of love, hope and solidarity and also foster pen pal friendships across lines of conflict.

2.
We inspire empathy in classrooms by raising awareness of refugee crises and sensitising school children while highlighting the potential of each child as a change agent in the society.

3.  
We work with the youth to promote inclusion, support vulnerable populations and bring communities together in various capacities.

You can read about our programs in detail on our website here.

We at Letters of Love strongly believe in the popular maxim, 'Many a little, makes a mickle'. Your humble donations will go  directly into supporting our organisational expenses and logistical costs involved in printing and couriering the letters.

Your humble donation could be the reason why tens of thousands of refugee children around the world are hopeful of a better tomorrow.
For all you know, for what it's worth, let's love !

Letters of Love in collaboration with PRECISE, a 3D printing and immersive computing specialist in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), delivered 3Doodlers that are 3D pens that enable users to draw in thin air, to Syrian Refugee children tended to by El Sistema Greece at Schisto Refugee Camp.

Each pen was accompanied with a heartfelt letter of love written by employees of PRECISE as well as a personalised 3D heart doodled for each child with their name in Arabic inscribed in it. The idea of the collaboration was to make education fun and encourage it amongst refugee children in an interactive manner.

"We gave them to the kids to draw notes and the sol key. They also made their own creations. They were very touched with the letters and their own personalised heart with their names on it. It was really beautiful! We kept a few pens and the teachers aim to use it as a teaching tool. It is very fun teaching notes with these pens."

PRECISE sets a great example of how one can do business for good and your generous contribution has been making refugee children smile ever since :). Thank you very much !

Here are some photographs in order to share the excitement and love these children felt while using the 3D pens and also, reading the letters from their new friends :)
