Our History

Over the last ten years our organization has experienced exceptional growth, receiving requests to join the program from teachers, students and community leaders around the globe. Originally called Project PeacePal, the program focused on exchanges of hand written pen pal letters between students. In recent years requests to expand the program to include Skype calls, video exchanges, student clubs and communication exchanges focused on science and technology topics have increased as well.

This led to the formation of Global One to One, the umbrella organization that now houses an array of programs and opportunities to develop intercultural understanding among greater numbers of people, more age groups and in more locations.. 


  • 2007 - Project PeacePal letter exchange founded in Albuquerque, NM. The first exchange was between a school in New Mexico and a school in Togo, West Africa. Since that time over 16,000,000 students in 28 countries have participated.
  • 2010 - After receiving letters from West African students reporting large numbers of family deaths resulting from malaria, U.S. students mobilized to raise $20,000 in order to send 4,700 life-saving bed nets to PeacePal communities in Ghana and Togo .
  • 2013 -  PeacePal invited by UNESCO to establish student clubs in New Mexico, increasing opportunities for unique intercultural learning experiences.
  • 2015 -   PeacePal grows into Global One to One. New format includes three programs: Connect One to One, Engage One to One and Innovate One to One.

When we connect one to one, anything is possible!
