I know in this day and age most people assume that computers, and therefore e-mail, is available everywhere. However, that's not the case. I've been to Kenya, Africa 4 times on missions trips. Even in Nairobi, the capital, electricity is often unreliable, if there is any. Also, computers are difficult for many families to come by. If they don't have one of their own, then they have to pay to both send and receive messages.

My advice would be to carefully research, and consider snail mail pen pals, depending on where your pen pals are from. Otherwise, you will have a bunch of disappointed students.
