About Us


Global Buddy Schools was founded two years ago in Sweden as part of the already established non-profit foundation Make a Kid Smile. The mission of Global Buddy Schools is to connect schools around the world to support increased understanding among children in different parts of the world. We initiate and facilitate activities at our Global Buddy Schools, such as sending drawings, writing letters, or collaboration in projects of mutual interest such as eg environmental issues. An activity can take 20 minutes or span over several months.

We are always on the lookout for new schools to join our network; schools that share our belief that more communication among young people contributes to a deeper understanding and respect for different people’s living conditions, cultural beliefs, and ideas for the future.
