PEN PALS

What ?

Pen Pals is a cause which aims at connecting Visually Impaired Students with the Voluntary writers who can assist them in writings exams.
Voluntary writers also assist students with chronic medical conditions, students with cerebral palsy and students with temporary injuries like a fracture, etc

Why ?

While a majority of the students appearing for their examinations worry over what questions to expect and whether they will have sufficient time to answer them or not, there is a category of students sharing a very different fundamental concern.

Every year, hundreds of students with disabilities and chronic medical conditions are taking their examinations with various agonise over uncertainties such as whether they will find a Pen Pals (voluntary writers to write exam) on time, whether the handwriting will be legible enough or whether he or she will be quick enough to cover all the questions.


At times, Visually Impaired students are even forced to pay hefty amounts to the scribes for assisting them. Pen Pals was conceptualized to help Visually Impaired students find scribes who can volunteer to write exams.
