"Students in Afghanistan and Japan are conducting online chats through a programme operated by UNICEF that encourages students to learn about each others' cultures. Students discuss their daily routines plus current events, such as the actions of Afghanistan's Taliban regime and Japan's earthquake. The conversations are said to be lively as well as therapeutic for students in Japan, who are still studying in a temporary facility following last year's disasters."
