Lantern Fund Activities Tool Kit
Lanterns are highly symbolic, as objects that radiate light, and the metaphor of the lantern has resonance in Afghan culture and literature. CW4WAfghan is bringing that same metaphor to Canadians, and in particular, to Canadian schools, in inviting participation in the fundraising objectives of The Lantern Fund.
We have created a tool kit to guide you through planning and organizing various activities making or using lanterns, that may be used for awareness-raising and educational purposes, or fundraising for The Lantern Fund, or both.
These activities provide an opportunity for Canadians to engage in issues around the fight for the human right to education, girls’ access to education, the role of teachers in creating social change, and teacher education; while they can also support the goals of The Lantern Fund, and help more teachers be trained. These activities can be tied into curricula, as well as used by community groups, or just among friends for fun.
