LightUp Foundation’s “Bag of Hope” Project

The LightUp Bag Of Hope (BOH) humanitarian project seeks to achieve two objectives:


CREATING A GLOBAL AWARENESS on the right of children and young people by making the LARGEST CANVAS BAG in the world, as well as have world leaders design the handle with their state memorabilia to reiterate their commitment to the plight of children and young people in their various countries.


The bag will be used to RAISE FUNDS with the sole aim of providing help to the less privileged children and young people. While this is going on we will be working towards decorating the BOH to become “THE LARGEST SEQUINS MOSAIC “ in the world with design inputs from children and young people across selected countries of the world. This exercise will put smiles on many children’s faces with award stickers/badges given to all participants.
