Pen is Mightier than Sword

This is a famous proverb that highlights the power and influence of a PEN. It suggests that words and ideas conveyed through writing are sharper than swords and can have a greater impact on people and society. This proverb is very much connected to our PenPal Program. 

Power of Persuasion:

The pen, representing writing, has the power to persuade, influence, and inspire people. Thoughtfully crafted words, can touch hearts, change minds, and rally people to a cause. In a world filled with negativity, a positive word when spilled on a physical paper or a digital paper, has the power to change one’s mind and can instill encouragement, motivation and self-confidence.

Empathy and Understanding

  When the barrel is filled with ink, a pen has a million horsepower energy that it can release words with more love and empathy through its nib. Words that convey empathy and understanding can help people feel heard and supported, fostering a sense of connection and emotional well-being.


Words that promote empowerment and self-belief can lead individuals to take action, overcome challenges, and advocate for positive change in their lives and communities. Words from many successful women have raised many women from the bottom. Yes, thanks to those powerful words which transformed women into empowered women.

Education and Knowledge:

The most important thing a pen can do is give education.  “Education is one thing no one can take away from you.” and is considered priceless. It challenges stereotypes, biases, and prejudices, fostering a more inclusive and accepting society. It is a gift that has the potential to shape lives, uplift communities, and create positive change in the world.

“How do we instill a sense of rightness in today’s youth?”  It seems to be a million dollar question. But the answer is simple. “CONNECT”

YES, Connect with them, anyone, through positive words. In Uganda, we have a huge youth population and trying to connect them to people with zillion positive words. There are children who are in need to hear words that can save them from disaster and great suffering. For them, those words are a blessing and they treasure it.

We believe optimistic words flowing from a pen are sharper than swords and can change a youth’s future by giving Education, Love and Power.

Join us in our PenPal Program and help us in empowering youth who are the future rulers of the world. Traditional PenPal relationships focused on written correspondence, modern PenPal also communicates through email, video chats, and other digital means. Regardless of the medium, the Essence of penpalling remains the same: connecting with others, sharing knowledge, and fostering love and understanding.
