Beacon of Hope
Beacon of Hope UAE deliver light, life and literacy to children in challenged regions of the world, in areas impacted by war, poverty or natural disaster. Light coupled with literacy equals hope, and with hope, all things are possible
At the festival, children will be taught to assemble Beacon-in-a-Box solar light kits providing lessons in the science of light, while giving children the pride and sense of accomplishment in creating a light that they built themselves that will later be sent to less fortunate children around the world.
This activation will take place in one of the reading “nooks” in the Tranquil Park and the lights will be displayed on the trees within the park throughout the festival.
The “Wanna Read?” initiative is led by Sheikha Shamma bint Sultan bin Khalifa Al Nahyan.
They create a colourful environment, full of books and other interesting things, to entertain children and to encourage them to learn through reading.
At the festival, they will activate the reading spaces in the Tranquil Park encouraging children to read from within one of the book nooks in the park.
