The central mission of Building International Birdges encourages intercultural communication.
An easy way to begin an exchange of information is to start a penpal relationship. BIB maintains a list of people who welcome
We encourage People to People contacts.
You can start by contacting PTPI.org and ask if you can participate in one of their cultural exchange missions.

LEARN about the CHINA Project
Some of our students in China told us that the YOUTUBE connection in China is so slow that it is difficult to watch educational videos on YouTube. So we decided to help our students by sending YouTube videos on DVDs to our students in China. We plan to download videos using ZAMZAR.com and then we can mail the results to our students. We can fit 400 videos, each about 10 MB, on one DVD.
