International Cooperation through not-sent postcards

The HIEA is helping the "World Terakoya Movement" of UNESCO (United Nations Educational Scientifid and Cultural Organization) collecting not-sent postcards.

Your not-sent postcard will turn into 7 pecils in Nepal, 1 notebook and 2 pens in Afghanistan and 4 meals in India.

Don't you have any postcards that you forgot to send or that you didn't send because you wrote something wrong on it? As long as it doesn't have a postmark and it's government-manufacture, anything is OK.

You can find collecting boxes at the information desk of the City Hall and also on the first floor of the City Library.

We appreciate your cooperation.
