Connecting each other through culture

WhatsApp Image 2020-12-08 at 8.06.20 PM.

For the last 10 years, we have been sending European students and young people to Japan, Korea, USA and Africa. We’ve done many cultural exchange programs and participated in service projects. But because of Covid-19 we are unable to continue our activities.

In our modern day world, we can reach across the globe and talk to each other in an instant. Why don't we use this gift to reach out to each other? Regardless of where we live?

This is what e-Pal is.

We want to break down social, ethnic and linguistic barriers and build intercultural relationships, communication and friendship among young people.

Why did we start e-Pal?
