We are privileged, at present, to be in contact with a handful of schools from around the world in Uganda, Antigua & Barbuda, Serbia, Belgium, Spain, Sri Lanka and Cuba. Our International Exchange Programme, which is coordinated by The Papillon Project, is chiefly about broadening the horizons of young people from around the world. This is being achieved by linking up schools from around the world with secondary schools and colleges in the UK (currently for Norfolk schools only). A few times a year schools will exchange experiences via letters, photographs and films to share how food is grown in their native country.
For more information about this programme please contact the charity via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
