Our effort at helping children of India and Pakistan to make friends across the border through writing letters has received an enormous response from children. Apart from schools that are linking up with each other, individual children from both countries have written to us to help them find a PEACEPAL in the other country. Hence AMAN has opened an ADDRESS BANK for those children who wish to make a penpal. Write in your request to us, with age and hobby details, at the address below and we hope to find you an address in Pakistan soon.
- PEACEPALS ADDRESS BANK-

Here are just some of the letters we have received recently. We'll be helping these children find Peacepals real soon.
My name is Ahana. I am very worried about the coflict between India and Pakistan. I find this rather foolish. Recently after the atomic explosion I was really upset. So, I decided write to some one across the border.
Please send me the address of a child of my age!!Aahana

I would like to be friendly with everyone and make the people around me happy. I donít like any kind of fighting. Our class students live like the members of our own family and we never take matters too seriously. We all love our country. We donít like to blame other countries and at the same time no one should blame our country and our leaders. We feel sad for the present condition of politics and are ready to do anything that we can do to make all the people live together happily.Sarada

Reading the announcement you have given in the newspaper, I am writing you this letter. I love making friends. My hobbies are singing, listening to music, modern art and finally, penpals. I have many penpals abroad but none in Pakistan. By making friends with Pakistanis, I think that one day we can achieve an understanding between them and us. I greatly appreciate this idea of yours. My address is written below and I hope that you will find me a friend in Pakistan soon. I will be waiting for your letter. I hope that I can hear from you soon.Deepti D.
