African penpal for nephew

Hello,
I'd love to try to get an African penpal for my American, English speaking only, 8 yr. old nephew. I plan on asking my safari guide in Tanzania to help. Hopefully he won't consider this an odd request.

Have any of you done this or do you have any suggestions? I'm leaving it up to my nephew to supply whatever info. he feels nec. and will try to not stiffle his imagination. I will supply an addressed and stamped envelope to the reciprocating child.

Any info./advice is appreciated.
Thanks ahead;
Sherry

Hi Cyn-you might try emailing www.chipembele.org a conservation school in Zambia (a very worthwhile organization). I'm sure Anna will fix you up and they speak English there. It's a really cool school and they're learning all about the world, not just anti-poaching.
